To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what representations she has received on the Barker Review of Land Use Planning. (112789)

Kate Barker published the final report of her independent Review of Land Use Planning on 5 December 2006. The Government have welcomed Kate Barker's report and will set out in a White Paper in spring 2007 our proposals in response to her recommendations for improving the speed, responsiveness and efficiency of land use planning.

In the meantime, the Government have said they will be interested to hear responses to the report. To date, the Department has received about 15 responses from a range of bodies and individuals.
