In the latest reshuffle, Lucy Frazer is promoted from housing minister to become culture secretary. She spent a full 91 days in the role! Rachel MacLean, (with a degree in Experimental Psychology and experience in banking and IT), takes over.

There have now been six housing ministers in the past year alone, with 15 Housing Ministers and nine Housing Secretaries since 2010.

We are already keeping a close eye on the progress of the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill and how it will affect work on the Local Plan at East Hants. However, the ‘revolving door’ appointments at Government level continue to stoke uncertainty in the sector which is already suffering from a lack of coherent policy making.

We are still hoping that East Hants will adopt a timetable that allows them to take full account of impending changes in legislation.
