§ Colonel Tufton Beamish
asked the Minister of Transport what is the reason for the delay in announcing the date of the public inquiry into the East Sussex County Council's proposals involving the acquisition of land and the closure of various side roads in Peacehaven; if he is aware that, pending a decision on this 316W matter, the making up and construction of side roads urgently in need of repair and not directly involved in the scheme is held up; and if he will now announce where and when the inquiry will be held.
§ Mr. Marples
A "joint" public local inquiry is now being arranged into the Traffic Regulation Orders and to hear the objections to the compulsory purchase order made by the County Council. The date will be announced shortly. It has not been possible to arrange an inquiry sooner because the statutory period for objections to one of the compulsory purchase orders only expired on 25th October.
