Question for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

UIN 983, tabled on 7 January 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what discussions his Department has had with the devolved Administrations on the potential merits of changing pitch fee review inflationary index for park homes from the retail price index to the consumer price index.

We made a commitment in October 2018 to change the pitch fee review inflationary index from the Retail Price Index (RPI) to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) having considered the responses of residents and site owners to our review of park homes legislation. The required primary legislation will be introduced when parliamentary time is available.

The Government response to the review is available at https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/749771/Park_homes_Review_Government_response.pdf.

Park homes policy is a devolved matter and formal consultation with the devolved Administrations is not required.
