HC Deb 17 October 1973 vol 861 cc164-5W
Mr. Farr

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he is taking to designate Catthorpe, Leicestershire, as a conservation area.

Mr. Graham Page

None. Under Section 277 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1971 it is the responsibility of the local planning authority to determine which parts of its area are of special architectural or historic interest with a character or appearance which should be preserved or enhanced, and to designate such areas as conservation areas.
