HC Deb 09 August 1972 vol 842 c415W
Sir R. Russell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what guidance he gives to planning authorities concerning the skylines of new buildings, especially high rise blocks of offices or flats.

Mr. Graham Page

It is for planning authorities to evolve detailed policies for high buildings, including skyline control, which must depend on local circumstances. I doubt whether general guidance would be helpful but it is important that the best professional advice should be sought.
