HC Deb 08 December 1971 vol 827 cc306-7W
29. Mr. Kenneth Clarke

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what advice he is giving to local planning authorities about the need to make proper provision for the future maintenance of open spaces before giving planning permission for new developments.

Mr. Graham Page

My right hon. Friend has no plans to issue advice. Local circumstances vary considerably and proper provision can best be made by the developer, the local authority and the local planning authority discussing-before grant of planning permission-arrangements for future maintenance.
