Since its introduction in October, the Housing and Planning Bill has had a lukewarm reception. It contains the government's promise last summer to extend the right to buy (RTB) to social housing tenants.

Businesses who have invested in solar farms are likely to be hardest hit by these proposals, as the government plans on removing incentives for large schemes (between 1 and 5 MW).
