HC Deb 09 February 1972 vol 830 c361W
53. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will approve as a matter of urgency the Gloucestershire County Council decision on 19th January to proceed with the Cheltenham High Street Plan.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

No. The County Council have not irrevocably decided to proceed with the plan. They have informed my Department that they are not disposed to accept the advice of their consultants that the proposal for the redevelopment of 109–117 High Street would seriously prejudice the preparation of comprehensive proposals for the centre of Cheltenham.
