HC Deb 02 July 1980 vol 987 c596W
49. Mr. Murphy

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the status of county structure plans in the light of his Department's circular calling for local authorities to make available five years' supply of building land.

Mr. Fox

The status of structure plans remains unaltered. Circular No. 9/80 states that the amount and location of land required to make up a five years' supply of housebuilding land should be derived from the housing policies and proposals in approved structure and local plans and not, as previously, from current building rates.
