§ 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.
