§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what response he has had from organisations, specifying which organisations, and individuals to his Department's consultation paper on proposals for amending the General Development Order 1977; what were the types of responses made; and when he expects to be in a position to put forward concrete proposals.
§ Mr. Fox
Comments have been received from many sources, including the local authority associations, professional bodies and local and national societies. A statement will be made when the comments have been analysed. Implementation of the changes proposed depends on prior enactment of related provisions in the Local Government, Planning and Land (No. 2) Bill.
