§ 41. Mr. Warbey
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware that no procedure exists by which persons, other than the applicant, aggrieved by a development order made by a local planning authority can appeal against the order; and whether he will introduce amending legislation to make such appeals possible.
§ Mr. Deedes
I assume that the hon. Member is referring to decisions on applications for planning permission. If everyone were entitled to object before anyone was allowed to put up a building or change a use or carry out some other development, enterprise would be subject to intolerable delays. Development which does not accord with the provisions of an approved plan is subject to restrictions; and in important cases third parties will be given an opportunity to make their views known before development substantially out of accord with an approved plan is allowed.
