HC Deb 21 May 1973 vol 857 cc19-20W
Mr. Terry Davis

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he received the Alvechurch Highway compulsory purchase order from Redditch Development Corporation; when the time period for objections expired; how many objections were received; and when he will decide whether he will confirm the compulsory purchase order.

Mr. Channon

The Redditch Development Corporation Compulsory Purchase Order No. 10 1972 was made on 14th September 1972 under the New Towns Act 1965 for the acquisition of properties in the Alvechurch Highway area which the corporation wishes to demolish to make way for a new road. The order was submitted to the Secretary of State on 26th September 1972, the last date for objections being 28th October 1972.

One objection was received and is the subject of negotiation. If the objection is not withdrawn, a public local inquiry will be held on 17th July 1973 and a decision on the order made as soon as possible after receipt of the inspector's report.
