Mr. Gresham Cooke
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether his attention has been called to the recent regulation made by the Middlesex County Council to ensure that adequate garage space will be provided 59W in connection with all construction of new houses and flats; whether he will provide a list setting out the present requirements with regard to garage accommodation for new buildings by each planning authority in England and Wales; and whether in the near future he will advise local authorities to raise their standards in this respect.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
I have seen the standards for garage and parking space in residential areas recently adopted by the Middlesex County Council. Other planning authorities have also adopted standards, but I cannot state the present requirements of each planning authority in England and Wales. I am considering whether to issue advice to planning authorities on this matter.
