§ 11. Mr. Grist
asked the Secretary of State for Wales when the noise contour map of Eastern Avenue, Cardiff, will be ready so that claims for compensation may be lodged under the Land Compensation Act 1973.
§ Mr. Barry Jones
Provisional noise maps for this scheme are expected to be published this month. This should enable the determination of claims for compensation for injurious affection to proceed.
§ Mr. Jones
We are well aware of the interest of householders and those affected by this matter. Outstanding claims are a matter for the district valuer and the owners of the properties concerned. There have been difficulties in obtaining noise insulation agents, because of the refusal of local authorities to accept this work as agents of the Welsh Office, but we have overcome those difficulties by the appointment of the National Building Agency.
