Mr. Arthur Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what estimate exists of the total extent of derelict land in Northamptonshire; how many acres were restored in 1969–70 and 1970–71; and what area has been programmed for the current year.

Mr. Peter Walker

The county council estimates that there were 361 acres of derelict land in Northamptonshire on 31st December, 1970. In the calendar years 1969 and 1970 the amount of derelict land restored was nil and 11 acres, respectively. The county council expects 17 acres to be restored in 1971.
