Compulsory Purchase: Coastal Areas

Volume 485: debated on Thursday 18 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to the answer of 25 November 2008, Official Report, column 1264W, on compulsory purchase: coastal areas, for what reasons the information requested is not held centrally. (244417)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 15 December 2008, Official Report, column 360W. CPOs made by local authorities are for a wide range of purposes and justified by site-specific considerations. We have no specific need to hold this information centrally and therefore the administrative cost of doing so is not justified.
