Latest exclusive briefings

Short Term Lets in London

released 30 September 2014

London planning rules require landlords to apply for planning permission if they wish to let a residential dwelling to a tenant for fewer than 90 days. The law was introduced in 1973 (through provisions in the Greater London Powers Act) in response to the growing use of permanent accommodation for short-term lets, which, it was feared, would exacerbate the housing shortage in the capital.

Supporting Children with Special Educational Needs

released 28 August 2014

This September heralds a new era for the education and support of children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities. The Children and Families Act 2014 sets out major changes to the SEN system, at the heart of which is far greater choice and control for children, young people and their fami­lies. The duties on local authorities remain significant under the legislation; as this briefing highlights, while councils' resources are stretched, boroughs and their partners must collaborate to bring about meaningful and sustainable change.
