§ Mr. John H. Osborn
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will call in for his consideration the planning decision taken by Sheffield city council in connection with Ryecroft Farm, Dore, Sheffield, in view of the importance to the local environment of a decision to use green belt and predominantly agricultural land for building purposes.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
No. Sheffield city council has not referred the application to me as a departure from the existing development plan and it is not my practice to intervene in planning issues of purely local significance.
