HC Deb 31 January 1969 vol 776 cc407-8W
Mr. Roebuck

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what requests he has received from London boroughs since 1st December last for re-designations of green belt land; and what replies he has sent.

Mr. K. Robinson

Since 1st December, 1968, my right hon. Friend has received no proposals to alter the Green Belt areas shown in the initial development plan for Greater London. He has, however, received under the Town and Country Planning (Development Plans) (Greater London) Direction, 1966, seven applications for the private development of Green Belt land which the London borough councils concerned wish to allow.

My right hon. Friend has "called in" for his decision one of these applications, for a car park extension at Rainham Road South, Dagenham, and as my hon. Friend already knows, he has decided not to intervene in another of them, involving the development of "The Limes", Stanmore, as a country club. He is still considering the other five applications.
