HC Deb 29 January 1964 vol 688 c50W
53. Mr. Clark Hutchison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has for amendment of the Town and Country Planning Act 1947, as it applies to Scotland, in relation to the notice given to nearby residents and occupiers of the intended construction of new buildings.

Mr. Noble

Applications for certain categories of development already have to be advertised while others may be at the discretion of the local planning authority. Experience does not suggest that it would be in the public interest to extend the classes that must be advertised.
