Planning: Canatxx and Byley

Volume 689: debated on Thursday 1 March 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Why there was a delay in the ministerial decisions following the planning inquiries in respect of Canatxx and Byley. [HL2238]

The Canatxx inquiry closed on 5 May 2006, and the timetable set for the decision to be issued is on or before 19 October 2007. The Byley inquiry closed on 19 December 2002, with a joint DTI/ODPM decision being issued on 19 May 2004. The timetables in both cases reflect the fact that these are extremely unusual, technical and complex cases.
