HC Deb 06 March 1961 vol 636 c12W
75. Mr. Lipton

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs to whom he has paid £250,000 as compensation for refusal of planning permission, as stated in Class V, Vote 1, of the Supplementary Estimate for 1960–61; and what site is involved.

Mr. Brooke

A claim by the Lower Thames Land Development and Construction Co. Ltd., for £243,838 has arisen out of the refusal of planning permission by the local planning authority in October, 1958, for the development of an industrial estate on 251 acres of land at Renwick Road, Barking, Essex. Interests other than those of the claimant company are affected, and the period during which they could object to the proposed settlement expired yesterday. The claim will now be paid.
