HL Deb 01 August 1935 vol 98 c1063

Clause 12, page 15, line 4, leave out from ("erection") to ("the") in line 5, and insert (" of a new building which, if erected in accordance with the plans, will be a building to which this section applies then, unless the local authority are satisfied that either—

  1. (a) the character of the new building is such as not to be likely to cause increased vehicular traffic along any road adjacent thereto; or
  2. (b) satisfactory arrangements have been, or will be, made for limiting interference with traffic along the roads adjacent thereto,")


My Lords, this and later consequential Amendments are designed to make it clear that the powers under the present clause can only be used by a local authority in the ease of such new buildings or reconstruction of buildings as are likely to cause vehicular traffic along roads adjacent to the buildings, and that the powers should not be used when the person responsible for the erection of the building has himself made adequate provision of accommodation in the vicinity. I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Earl of Plymouth.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
