§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales on what date he received the rural Dwyfor local plan as proposed by the Dwyfor district council; and if he will now either approve that plan or indicate the points of dispute that are holding back such approval.
§ Mr. John Stradling Thomas
Copies of the rural Dwyfor local plan were received on 6 July 1982. Following receipt in August 1983 of the Dwyfor district council's notice of their disposition to adopt the plan as modified by them, the council was directed on 5 September 1983, under regulation 32(3) of the Town and Country Planning (Structure and Local Plans) Regulations 1982, not to adopt the plan until it was notified whether or not my right hon. Friend wished to approve it himself. A decision will be made when the further consideration being given by the Government to certain kinds of policies contained in some structure and local plans, has been concluded.
