HC Deb 08 March 1990 vol 168 c798W
Ms. Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals he has for limiting the timescale between revised planning applications relating to planning applications previously refused and which relate to a site of special scientific interest.

Mr. Michael Spicer

[holding answer 7 March 1990]: The Department's consultation paper "Efficient Planning", issued last July, included a proposal to give local planning authorities the right to refuse to determine any application on the grounds that it was made within two years following an unsuccessful appeal and there had been no material change in circumstances. The responses to the consultation paper are being considered.
