Compulsory Purchase: Flimwell

Volume 459: debated on Monday 30 April 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he plans to purchase the Weald Smokery in Flimwell under a compulsory purchase order. (134786)

Draft orders for the A21 schemes have not yet been published, so no properties are currently subject to compulsory purchase. However, the owner of the Weald Smokery has served a Statutory Blight Notice on the Secretary of State and this has been accepted. The property is therefore to be acquired under the blight provisions contained in Section 154(2) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
