HC Deb 22 June 1989 vol 155 cc228-9W
32. Mr. Kilfedder

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will take steps to give objectors the right of appeal to the Planning Appeals Commission against the granting of planning permission.

Mr. Needham

No, Sir.

Mr. John D. Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland why the fencing and planting at No. 35 Ballygelagh road in the borough of Ards have not been provided in accordance with the conditions of planning permission; what proposals the Department of the Environment, planning division, has to ensure the implementation of the planning approval conditions; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Needham

[holding answer 19 June 1989]: The occupier of the new development adjacent to No. 35 Ballygelagh road submitted a planning application on 18 January 1989 for the retention of the dwelling without compliance with the condition requiring the erection of the screen fence. Since there was no reasonable ground for refusal, planning permission was granted on 23 May 1989.
