HC Deb 04 February 1991 vol 185 c37W
Sir Barney Hayhoe

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he intends to publish new planning policy guidance notes to replace the existing PPG3 "Land for Housing."

Sir George Young

Yes. A draft revised planning policy guidance note on housing, PPG 3, was issued for consultation by my Department in the autumn of 1989. This attracted several hundred responses which raised a number of important and complex issues requiring careful consideration. My right hon. Friend hopes to be in a position to publish the revised guidance in final form shortly.
