HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc425-6W
Sir T. Moore

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what arrangements are to be made in Scotland following the acceptance by Her Majesty's Government of the conclusions of the Buchanan Report to carry out planning and transport studies of suitable towns and areas in Scotland; and what will be the main purpose of these special studies.

Mr. Noble

A transport/land use survey of the Glasgow conurbation area and a case study of Perth will both start soon. Apart from providing the groundwork for the revision of development plans for both areas in the light of the Buchanan Report, these studies will provide material on the techniques of planning surveys and on the principles of planning which will be of great value to other authorities large and small.
