Regional Planning and Development: South West

Volume 505: debated on Friday 5 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what recent progress has been made on the Regional Spatial Strategy for the South West. (316052)

This is currently being undertaken and should be complete in the Spring. Ministers will then consider how to take forward the SW RSS.
