To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress has been made to date on the consideration by his Department's inquiry reporter of the appeal against planning refusal for the demolition of the listed building known as Crookston Station.
I have been asked to reply.The papers in connection with this appeal are presently with the Scottish Office inquiry reporters unit and in common with most planning appeals it is proposed that this case be determined by a reporter acting under delegated powers. This appeal is due to be heard at public local inquiry along with an associated planning appeal in respect of proposed residential development on the site of the old station.
As Glasgow has many appeal cases, it is not possible to fix an inquiry date before February.
It is expected that a suitable date can be arranged towards the end of February 1990.
