HC Deb 29 July 1976 vol 916 cc360-1W
Mr. George Rodgers

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he can now give a date when the twice postponed local appeal, concerning the listed building Clayton Hall, Chorley, will be held.

Mr. Shore

An inquiry into an appeal against an enforcement notice was twice postponed with the agreement of the parties concerned. On 5th July, before renewed arrangements for an inquiry could be agreed, the building was demolished because it was considered unsafe. In these new circumstances an inquiry could no longer serve its original purpose of hearing the appeals against an enforcement notice and refusal of listed building consent.
