HC Deb 10 June 1996 vol 279 cc34-5W
Ms Gordon

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage if she will make a statement on the extent of the surviving Roman road on the site of the HAT redevelopment of the Lefevre Walk estate on the Parnell road, Old Ford site; and what measures are planned to ensure that the surviving Roman road remains(a) undisturbed and (b) accessible for further investigation. [31308]

Mr. Sproat

Archaeological remains, including a small part of the Roman road which extended from London to Colchester, exist at the Lefevre Walk estate redevelopment site and have been properly investigated in accordance with English Heritage's advice. As recommended in Government guidance on archaeology and planning, a condition has been included in the planning permission given by the London borough of Tower Hamlets to ensure that the foundations for the new housing development will have as little impact as possible on these remains.
