HC Deb 08 July 1997 vol 297 c445W
Mr. Dismore

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what representations his Department has received concerning the planning applications submitted by Belmont Stables for the Totteridge valley, Barnet area: and if he will make a statement. [6486]

Mr. Caborn

The application affecting the Totteridge valley submitted by the Belmont Riding Centre have been taken to appeal. The Planning Inspectorate are arranging a local inquiry into the proposals. Over 150 individual representations have been received by the Inspectorate all raising concerns about the proposals. A 450-signature petition in support of the proposals was received by the local planning authority. As the appeals are still to be heard it would not be appropriate to comment on the merits of the proposed developments.
