South-west Spatial Strategy

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 20 January 2009

19. To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what recent progress has been made towards agreement of the draft south-west regional spatial strategy. (248957)

The Secretary of State received around 35,000 responses from individuals and organisations to the consultation on her proposed changes to the south-west regional spatial strategy. This is the largest number ever received to such a consultation. My officials at the Government office for the south west are currently assessing the responses and the Secretary of State will consider proposals for a revised timetable shortly.
