The Localism Bill will result in wide ranging changes to housing and planning, which represent a fundamental shift in policy to a more localised system. A number of these proposals are welcome yet Shelter has key concerns regarding some proposed measures, which were not addressed at Commons committee stage. The key concerns Shelter has identified in the Localism Bill are: undermining the legal duty towards homeless people and removing security in social housing. The Government failed to address critical concerns at committee stage and Shelter wants to see these proposals removed from the Bill entirely or at the very least substantially reformed.
