§ 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 361W of hearing the appeals against an enforcement notice and refusal of listed building consent.
