HC Deb 01 July 1936 vol 314 c425W

asked the Minister of Health whether he will intervene to prevent the development of the site in Poynders Road, Clapham Park, in the manner now proposed by the London County Council, by the erection of blocks of flats, in view of the fact that the site was primarily scheduled in their Town Planning Scheme No. 7 for building houses with a limit of six houses to the acre, and that the county council themselves refused permission to build flats on the opposite side of Poynders Road, which refusal was confirmed by the Ministry on appeal?


I am aware that the London County Council are proposing to erect a block of flats in Poynders Road, Clapham Park and, as I understand the land is being acquired by agreement, my approval is not required. A preliminary statement of proposals for a planning scheme was approved in 1931, but no scheme has yet been submitted to me, and the final scheduling of the area has still to be determined. I have no jurisdiction to intervene in respect of proposals for development which are approved by the County Council as the Interim Development Authority.
