§ Mr. Silkin
asked the Secretary of State for Transport, how many environmental traffic management schemes which include or included a street closure have been submitted to his Department since April 1986; when his Department took power over designated and trunk roads from the Greater London council; and how many such schemes have been (a) accepted and (b) rejected, showing to which of the London boroughs the acceptance or rejection refers.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We do not keep central records of local authorities' environmental traffic management schemes or street closures.
Since April 1986 I have approved 199 and objected to 13 of London boroughs' proposals notified to me under the designated road provisions in schedule 5 to the Local Government Act 1985. Designated road notifications involving street closures could be separately selected only at disproportionate cost.
