HC Deb 23 March 1965 vol 709 cc41-2W
46. Mr. Longden

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will take steps to encourage all county planning authorities to adopt the Oxfordshire scheme, whereby parish councils are automatically kept informed of all applications for planning permission affecting land in their parishes.

Mr. Crossman

I am carefully watching the Oxfordshire scheme, but would be reluctant to encourage anything which would add to the time taken in settling applications.
