HC Deb 17 March 1987 vol 112 c429W
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.
