Thames Gateway: Parks

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will make a statement on her plans for the proposed Thames Gateway Parkland. (139123)

[holding answer 24 May 2007]: On 22 November 2006 the Government published its Interim Plan for the Thames Gateway, which, among other things, set out the Government's intention to develop the Thames Gateway Parklands.

The parklands will establish a unifying green vision for the Gateway's natural, built and historic landscapes. It will promote well designed, sustainable and high quality places with the Thames estuary at its heart.

A framework for delivery will be published later in the year.
