Derelict Land

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the (a) terms of reference and (b) timetable are for the review of the brownfield designation of garden land; and if she will make a statement. (253900)

We are committed to a review of the evidence on the extent of development on back gardens to establish whether or not there is a clear and genuine problem. If there is a problem, we will consider action to remedy the situation. The terms of reference for the review are due to be decided shortly and will be published.
