§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will make it his policy to reject any application to divert the public right of way in the case of the Property Services Agency proposals to develop Page street, SW1.
§ Mr. Atkins
Such matters must be considered on their merits in accordance with the normal statutory procedures. A draft order under section 209 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1971 proposing the stopping up of the relevant length of Page street was published on 12 October. Objections received to that draft order are being considered. An announcement will be made shortly on the next step in the statutory procedures.
