Volume 464: debated on Friday 19 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what recent representations she has received on the Planning White Paper. (157442)

The Planning White Paper covered a wide variety of issues and included a number of questions upon which we went to consultation. This closed on 17 August 2007. We received over 30,000 responses which we are currently in the process of analysing. The Government will produce a summary of responses, including next steps, shortly. However, Ministers continue to receive a range of letters and other representations on the issues raised in the Planning White Paper.
