HC Deb 03 March 1966 vol 725 c359W
Mr. Hall-Davis

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he has concluded his consultations with the National Parks Commission regarding redevelopment on the Ulverston-Barrow coast road at Roosebeck; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. MacColl

It was suggested to Lancashire County Council and the National Parks Commission last November that the problem of unsightly shacks at Roosebeck might conveniently be discussed at one of the regional conferences which the latter is arranging with maritime planning authorities about the preservation of coastal amenities. The conference for this area will take place in December.

Meanwhile, however, my right hon. Friend has issued a Circular drawing the attention of maritime planning authorities to the need to formulate more stringent policies for safeguarding the coast. He understands that Lancashire are giving the Roosebeck problem further thought in the light of what is said in this Circular.
