A TCPA Healthy Homes campaign
briefing on the Levelling Up and
Regeneration Bill

This briefing sets out the TCPA’s overarching concerns about the Levelling up and Regeneration Bill (LURB), ahead of its second reading in the House in the Lords on Tuesday 17 January.

In summary, the TCPA strongly supports the need to tackle the entrenched inequalities identified in the Levelling Up the United Kingdom white paper. However, the LURB does not effectively address these problems, particularly in relation to housing, health, climate change and the cost-of-living crisis.

In some cases, such as the reduction in meaningful community participation and the centralisation of planning power, the LURB runs counter to the white paper’s stated objectives of promoting empowered communities and securing their health and wellbeing.
