HC Deb 02 February 1987 vol 109 c522W
29. Sir David Price

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is his Department's policy towards the operation of caravan cafes from lay-bys on trunk roads unauthorised by local planning departments.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

The Department's policy is to secure the removal of unauthorised developments of this kind where there is a safety hazard or interference with traffic flows or an environmental nuisance. Alternatively, it may agree action to this end by the local planning authority.
