HC Deb 31 October 1988 vol 139 c538W
Mr. Wareing

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many appeals against the decisions of local planning authorities were made to him in respect of land within green belts, conservation areas and agricultural areas in each of the years 1979 to 1988, inclusive; and how many of these he upheld in each of those years.

Mr. Chope

The information is not available in the form requested. The annual reports of the chief planning inspector identify numbers of appeals received and allowed by development type. Copies of the reports for the period 1981 to 1986–87 are in the Library.
