HC Deb 07 February 1973 vol 850 c110W
Mr. Judd

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals have been submitted to him by the special working party on a policy for lorry parks in southern Hampshire; and if he will use his planning powers to ensure that no such parks are situated in the vicinity of residential areas including, specifically, the Tipner neighbourhood of Portsmouth; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Peyton

I accept the report's recommendations in principle. These include the establishment of a lorry park at Tipner. I understand the local planning authority is publishing a plan for the Tipner area which will offer an opportunity for public discussion of the lorry park proposal.
