HC Deb 26 April 1972 vol 835 cc293-4W
85. Mr. Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will now publish details of the proposed planning restraints made by his Department on development in the area of the Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope.

Mr. Graham Page

The control of development in the area of the telescope is primarily the responsibility of Cheshire County Council, which is consulting Manchester University and the district councils concerned on future policies for the area. When these consultations are completed my right hon. Friend proposes to make a direction formalising arrangements for consultation between the county council and the university.
