    The Queen’s Speech in Parliament this week announced the laws that the government are planning to be introduce in the next twelve months. We would like to update our Clients of the government’s plans for the new laws which may be of particular interest to you.


    Your Community?
    The government propose to introduce laws giving local communities an opportunity to say more over their neighbourhood planning. They also plan to make compulsory purchase planning orders "clearer, fairer and faster," for the seller. The aim of the government is to change the planning laws to address the housing crisis whilst at the same time listening to the local community in their cry for the building of infrastructure to support the new housing areas being developed.

    Your Home?
    During the Queen’s Speech it was also suggested that a new law will be introduced ensuring there is a broadband connection for every household, and there will automatic compensation paid out if the connection goes wrong. Further, the government has proposed that new laws will be introduced to protect consumers from spam emails and nuisance calls by ensuring consent is obtained for direct marketing. Companies who do not seek your consent will be fined.

    Your Children?
    The government have several plans for the law regarding children in care. They plan to prioritise permanent adoption over short-term placements. The aim of this proposed law is to get children out of the care system and permanently adopted rather than sending children to live with relatives for short periods of time. Further, it has been proposed during the Queen’s Speech that the government want to make sure that children leaving care have better support. They plan to introduce a new social work regulator to focus on training and professional standards, and all care leavers are to have the right to have a personal adviser up to the age of twenty five. The government is clearly looking to improve the standard of support for those leaving care as they progress in to their adult life.


    If you are driving with with young children, it has recently been announced that backless booster seats will banned for children below a certain height and weight. If your child is under 22 kilograms and under 125 centimetres in height, they will not be allowed to travel in a car on a backless booster seat. This will mean that smaller children will need a car seat, with a seat and supportive back, rather than just the booster seat element to sit on. This law is due to come in to force in December 2016. Experts have stated that small children are much better protected in a car crash when they are travelling in a booster seat with back support rather than a backless booster seat.


    We will of course keep you updated with regards to the new laws being introduced via our website, on Facebook and on our Twitter @dawsonslaw.
