§ 71. Lieut. - Commander FLETCHER
asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered protests submitted to him concerning proposed developments at West Wittering, Sussex; and what action he proposes to take?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
My right hon. Friend is aware that there is some enxiety about the development proposed at West Wittering, but this is primarily a matter for the West Sussex County Council, who are preparing a planning scheme for the area, and the Chichester Rural District Council, who are the interim development authority, and my right hon. Friend understands that both these authorities have had the proposals for development under consideration. My right hon. Friend's only jurisdiction in such a case arises on a, refusal of planning consent by the interim development authority.
