HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 c1668
Lords Amendment: In page 10, line 40, at end insert new Clause "A":
Where an application for a site licence is made in respect of an existing site and—
no account shall be taken of the said permission either for the purposes of section three of this Act or for the purposes of the last foregoing section; and the last foregoing section shall have effect in relation to the said application as if for the references in subsections (3) and (4) thereof to a period of six months beginning with the date on which the application is made there were substituted references to a period of six months beginning with the date on which the said permission will expire.
- (a) the existing site has at the date of the application the benefit of a permission for the use of the land as a caravan site granted under Part III of the Act of 1947 otherwise than by a development order, but
- (b) the said permission was granted before the commencement of this Act and in terms such that it will expire within a period of six months beginning with the date of the application,
Sir K. Joseph
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.
This Amendment exactly replaces for existing sites the provision inserted previously in general terms in Clause 3 and which we have just, by Amendment, caused to be omitted. It provides that a planning permission given
before the commencement of this Act
and with less than six months to run from the date of application for site licence shall not entitle the applicant to a site licence. The Amendment therefore replaces the provisions in the Bill which we omitted earlier to allow for a temporary site licence for such things as agricultural fairs.
Question put and agreed to.
