HC Deb 03 December 1975 vol 901 cc623-4W
58. Mr. Guy Barnett

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek to amend the Town and Country Planning Act 1971, Section 29, so as to include amongst material considerations, to which regard is paid in deter mining planning applications, blind spots in television reception which may be caused to those living near proposed tall buildings.

Mr. John Silkin

Where proposed development might affect television reception this possibility may already be a material consideration under existing legislation and a local planning authority may give due weight to it when determining an application for planning permission.
