Infrastructure Planning (Model Provisions) (England and Wales) Order 2009

Volume 716: debated on Wednesday 6 January 2010

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government why a limit is set for the completion of works under the Infrastructure Planning (Model Provisions) (England and Wales) Order 2009 (SI 2009/2265), while in Schedule 4 to the Order the limit concerns the commencement of the works. [HL626]

Both provisions relate to ensuring that any works granted development consent under the Planning Act 2008 commence and complete in a timely manner. Such provisions avoid prolonged disruption and the unnecessary eyesore of unfinished works as well as, to some extent, deterring blight.
