§ Dr. Cunningham
asked the Secretary of State for Transport when the decision was taken to site a service station on the M25 at Clacket lane, Titsey Wood, Croydon; when planning permission was granted; and if he will list all other sites approved, or currently being considered, for service stations along the M25.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
Proposals for the provision of four motorway service areas on the M25 were announced on 30 July 1984. The sites proposed are at Clacket lane, Iver, South Mimms and Thurrock. No planning permission has yet been given for the site at Clacket lane. Our proposals for this site has been the subject of objections from local authorities. A public local inquiry is to be held, probably in the spring. A final decision will then be taken in the light of the report of the inspector who takes the inquiry.
