Planning: South West Region

Volume 463: debated on Wednesday 12 September 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assessment she has made of the (a) viability of Multi-Area Agreements (MAAs) between Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and (b) effectiveness of MAAs in the South West region. (155335)

We have not received a proposition for a multi area agreement (MAA) between Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, but would be happy to discuss this further with the areas concerned. MAAs are a new concept and we are at the stage of initial proposals for their possible development. None exist yet to evaluate.
