§ Mr. John Wells
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether his Department has had any recent representations about the need for legislation on leisure plots; and whether he regards this matter as still requiring legislation to regulate it.
§ Mr. Fox
I have received representations calling for both tightening and loosening of planning controls over leisure plots. Decisions made in enforcement appeals about leisure plots at Blackwater Estuary are at present being challenged in the High Court. I shall review the need for legislative change when the court has reached its decision.
