Regional Planning and Development: South East

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 30 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government when the South East Regional Spatial Strategy will next be reviewed. (282871)

As the South East England Regional Spatial Strategy was published recently, the focus now is on implementing it. However, reviews of the policies in the regional spatial strategy on minerals and Gypsies, Travellers and travelling showpeople are under way. The regional planning body will need to consider when to do a full review against the backdrop of emerging legislation for integrated regional strategies. My officials will discuss with them a project plan for the review over the coming months.
