Planning Permission

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what planning requirements and processes apply to proposals for (a) new urban development and (b) eco-towns. (202307)

[holding answer 28 April 2008]: All planning applications for new urban development are determined in accordance with the development plan unless other material considerations indicate otherwise. This is also the case for eco-towns and the planning process is set out in the recently published consultation document—“Eco-towns—Living a greener future”. Copies of the document are available in the House Library.
