Eco-Towns: Planning Permission

Volume 475: debated on Wednesday 7 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government which bids to become eco-towns included plans for development on (a) green belt and (b) greenfield land. (202558)

On the basis of an evaluation of the shortlisted bids, I can confirm that no new homes will be built on green belt land. In terms of greenfield land, I refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 25 April 2008, Official Report, column 2303W to the hon. Member for Cotswold (Mr. Clifton-Brown).
