Thousands of £250,000 starter homes are about to be built (outside London)

whatsapp Thousands of £250,000 starter homes are about to be built (outside London) Mark Sands Tuesday 3 January 2017 1:00 am The government has agreed 30 local partnerships with councils across the UK, with support from the a £1.2bn starter homes land fund.Talks are ongoing with the Greater London Authority about bringing the scheme to the capital. Homes in London will be capped at £450,000.Read More: Philip Hammond unveils £5bn housebuilding stimulus packageBarwell said: “This first wave of partnerships shows the strong local interest to build thousands of starter homes on hundreds of brownfield sites in the coming years.”However, the programme has come under criticism, with analysis by Savills suggesting that a 20 per cent discount would help average earners with minimal deposits buy a starter home in just 45 per cent of all council areas in England. whatsapp Responding to today’s announcement, Local Government Association housing spokesman councillor Martin Tett said “It is good that the Government is working closely with councils to build more homes, alongside the infrastructure needed to support strong communities.“Ultimately, local areas will need discretion on the number of starter homes required in new developments. This will allow councils to ensure a mix of homes – to rent and buy – are built which are affordable for those people that need them and that are crucial for enabling people to save money towards a deposit.” Share Housing minister Gavin Barwell has given the green light for the construction of thousands of new starter homes outside of the capital.Built on brownfield sites, the new homes are designed for first-time buyers between 23 and 40 years old, and will be sold at a discount of 20 per cent below market value, with a maximum discounted price of £250,000. read more

A blow for Nicola Sturgeon’s independence referendum? Poll reveals 57 per cent of Scottish voters back remaining in the UK

Nicola Sturgeon’s plans for another independence referendum look like they’ve taken a knock, as a new poll reveals support for remaining in the UK is at a two-year high.Sturgeon announced on Monday that she will seek a second referendum on the issue. The Scottish first minister will go to MSPs next week to seek approval for a referendum between the autumn of 2018 and spring of 2019.

It’s sufficiently ambiguous to let her kick the can down the road – again.” City A.M. understands that he is pushing for a points-based system, akin to the one used in Australia, which would put EU workers on the same level as those from other parts of the world.However, the proposal – which is favoured by Brexiters and had been pencilled into the upcoming Brexit white paper – has been challenged by chancellor Philip Hammond and business secretary Greg Clark, according to two sources.It is thought the pair object to Javid’s plans because of the immediate impact it would have on businesses used to accessing EU talent without barrier as a result of freedom of movement, which will end when the UK leaves the bloc.One source said: “It was supposed to come before Cabinet three weeks ago so it could be included [in the white paper], but Hammond and Clark don’t like it, so that’s that.”The government has some time before having to commit a position on immigration, as officials await the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC)’s report in September before bringing forward an Immigration Bill to deal with the new regime. New battle lines have been drawn within Theresa May’s Cabinet over Britain’s post-Brexit immigration system, stoking divisions even further and presenting the Prime Minister with yet another headache.Home secretary Sajid Javid is understood to have dropped one of two models being considered under his predecessor, which would have favoured EU citizens by effectively granting them an automatic visa. whatsapp whatsapp Monday 2 July 2018 10:00 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeAdviser.wikiMost Expensive Dogs Breeds in the WorldAdviser.wikiCookingAmour12 Unexpected but Great Uses for Vicks VapoRubCookingAmourSync.comHow To Build A Winning Team At WorkSync.comHealth.recetasget5 Common Cancer Signs to Pay Attention ToHealth.recetasgetChillingHistory20 Incredible Facts About The Most Famous People in HistoryChillingHistorytibgez10 Signs & Symptoms of Lewy Body DementiatibgezGo Weather NowStay Up To Date With The Weather In Your AreaGo Weather NowHealthy ZoneWarning! 10 Subtle Signs of Kidney Diseases that Should Never Be IgnoredHealthy ZoneAuto carLook: Top 5 best small SUVs 2021 | AutocarAuto car read more

Bill Browder calls for Russia to be barred from Interpol system after ‘serial abuse’

first_img Bill Browder calls for Russia to be barred from Interpol system after ‘serial abuse’ James Booth Browder said he had been subject to seven illegitimate arrest requests by Russia while Khodorkovsky said Russia had sent arrest requests to individual member states targeting him.The press conference comes ahead of a closely-watched race to appoint the new president of Interpol, with a vote set for tomorrow.A Russian official, Alexander Prokopchuk, is tipped to become the body’s new head, following the disappearance and resignation of Meng Hongwei, who is being investigated for corruption in China.Prokopchuk was previously Interpol national bureau chief in Russia, during a period where Browder and Khodorkovsky accused Russia of illegitimately using the Interpol system to harass them.Speaking through an interpreter Khodorkovsky said he was concerned that if Propochuck was elected he would serve “not in the interest of Interpol and justice but in the interest of people in the Kremlin”. Tuesday 20 November 2018 12:56 pm Share Formerly one of the Russia’s biggest foreign fund managers before he was expelled in 2005, Browder, a UK citizen, has been described as Russia’s “most wanted man”.EU lawmakers will vote today on a European equivalent to the Magnitsky Act – named after Magnitsky and strongly backed by Browder – a piece of US legislation passed in 2012 which barred 18 Russians from entering the US and using its banks.The law was expanded in 2016 to allow US authorities to impose targeted sanctions against those who have committed human rights violations, wherever they live. The act has been strongly criticised by Putin. whatsapp Hermitage Capital boss Bill Browder called today for Russia to be barred from the Interpol system ahead of the potential election of a Russian head of the international policing body.At a press conference in London today, Browder and exiled Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky described Russian abuse of the Interpol system to pursue them overseas. Browder said that at present he only travels to “rule of law countries”, saying he otherwise risked being sent back to Russia to be “tortured and killed”.Browder said if Prokopchuk was appointed he would “have to be more careful about travelling,” which he said was, “Vladimir Putin’s chief objective”.He said there was widespread opposition in the West to the potential election of Prokopchuk which he said would be like “putting the mafia in charge”.Yesterday, prosecutors in Moscow claimed Browder’s fund shareholders used illegal profits made in the country to fund donations to the Democratic Party, and claimed he may have poisoned Sergei Magnitsky, his Russian accountant who died in prison after uncovering a huge fraud.Browder has accused Russian prison officials of causing the death of Magnitsky, whom the investor often refers to as having been a lawyer. whatsapp Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoZen HeraldEllen Got A Little Too Personal With Blake Shelton, So He Said ThisZen HeraldUndoTotal PastJohn Wick Stuntman Reveals The Truth About Keanu ReevesTotal PastUndoScientific MirrorLily From The AT&T Ads Is Causing A Stir For One ReasonScientific MirrorUndoLearn It WiseColleagues Find Woman’s Bikini Photos Inappropriate, Give Her UltimatumLearn It WiseUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoNoteableyFaith Hill’s Daughter Is Probably The Prettiest Woman In The WorldNoteableyUndoFinance Wealth PostTom Selleck’s Daughter Is Probably The Prettiest Woman To Ever ExistFinance Wealth PostUndo Tags: People Vladimir Putinlast_img read more
