Waste Management

Volume 454: debated on Wednesday 13 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will call in for her consideration the application from Severn Waste for the construction and operation of a co-mingled waste recycling plant at Norton in Worcestershire. (108156)

[holding answer 11 December 2006]: My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State’s policy is to be very selective about calling in planning applications. She will, in general, only take this step if planning issues of more than local importance are involved. The application in question is for Worcestershire county council to determine in the first instance as the local planning authority.
