HC Deb 06 December 1978 vol 959 c682W
Mr. Michael Latham

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will make a statement on the results since 26th October 1977 of monitoring by his Department of the response to design bulletin 32, following the recommendations of paragraphs 20 and 21 of the report of his environmental board about residential access roads and footpaths.

Mr. Freeson:

Information received by the Department's housing development directorate following the publication of design bulletin 32 in July 1977 suggests that highway authorities are becoming more flexible in the formulation and application of local standards and more receptive to innovations discussed in the bulletin.
