asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has received any representations against planning permission being given for the proposed development of the Falmouth container terminal; and if he will make a statement.

Representations against the grant of planning permission for the Falmouth container terminal have been received by my right hon. Friend from the Falmouth Civic Society, the Falmouth container terminal action group and one member of the public. The 1971 enabling Act for the Falmouth container terminal effectively gave outline planning consent to the harbour works as permitted development within the terms of the general development order 1977. However Carrick district council, as local planning authority, does have some powers of control over details of the project.It is too early to say whether any other ancillary works which may be envisaged will require specific planning permission.
