65. Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what steps are taken to ensure that adequate supplies of water are available before planning consent is given for development.

Mr. MacColl

It is for the local planning authority to satisfy themselves that an adequate supply of water will be available for the development proposed when they are considering the merits of the planning application.
