Property Development

Volume 491: debated on Monday 20 April 2009

To ask the hon. Member for Middlesbrough, representing the Church Commissioners what proposed property development schemes the Church Commissioners are participating in. (268810)

The Commissioners’ strategic land portfolio comprises about 40 property development schemes located throughout England. Of the few that are being developed, the Commissioners have agreements in place with developers for them to take forward the schemes at their risk. Most are pre-development, comprising sites which have yet to be allocated for development in a development plan, those allocated without planning permission, and those with planning permission but yet to be developed. In the hon. Gentleman’s constituency, the Commissioners are jointly promoting the Bognor Regis Eco Quarter proposal with other landowners. This is part of Option 1 in the Arun District Council’s current development options consultation exercise.
