§ Mr. Warbey
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs why he decided to dispense with a local inquiry in the case of the appeal against a decision of the Nottinghamshire County Council to refuse permission for the erection of a bungalow and garage on a site in Middlebrook Road, Selston, on the grounds that the site forms part of the Green Belt proposed in the county development plan.
§ Sir K. Joseph
Both the appellant and the respondent planning authority agreed that the appeal should be dealt with on the basis of written representations, and my right hon. Friend was not aware of any circumstances calling for a local inquiry.
