Planning: Terrorism

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 3 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to the answer to the hon. Member for Welwyn Hatfield of 1 February 2008, Official Report, column 696W, on planning, what guidance her Department has published on planning policy and counter-terrorism. (252499)

Communities and Local Government has not yet published any guidance on planning policy and counter-terrorism. However, we are developing joint guidance in partnership with the Home Office and working with other key stakeholders to produce a supplement to the existing guidance “Safer Places: The Planning System and Crime Prevention”, which will cover counter-terrorism issues. We expect to publish this document for public consultation later this year.
