Speaker: Mr Clive Betts MP, Chair of the Housing, Communities and Local Government Select Committee
The role of the Housing, Communities and Local Government is to monitor the policy, administration and spending of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. The Committee sets its own programme and chooses its own subjects for inquiries.
At a time of considerable change within the planning system, the committee offers the opportunity for cross-party scrutiny of new planning legislation. It also monitors ongoing delivery through the planning system, and is well placed to recommend changes in policy and practice.
This event will consider the ongoing work of the committee, its priorities on subjects for investigation going forward and its views on emerging policy.
