Legislative Consent: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill

The Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (the Bill) was introduced in the House of Commons on 11 May 2022.


The long title to the Bill notes that it is a Bill “to make provision for the setting of levelling-up missions and reporting on progress in delivering them; about local democracy; about town and country planning; about Community Infrastructure Levy; about the imposition of Infrastructure Levy; about environmental outcome reports for certain consents and plans; about regeneration; about the compulsory purchase of land; about information and records relating to land, the environment or heritage; for the provision for pavement licences to be permanent; about governance of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors; about vagrancy and begging; and for connected purposes.”
