HC Deb 07 April 1998 vol 310 c178W
Mr. Robert McCartney

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if she will make a statement on her policy with respect to(a) building on green belt land and (b) the proportion of brownfield sites to be used for future housing. [37161]

Mr. Paul Murphy

Policy on buildings on green belt land in Northern Ireland is set out in the publication "A Planning Strategy for Rural Northern Ireland", published in September 1993, a copy of which is available in the Library.

The draft Regional strategic Framework will be issued for public consideration within the next few months and this document will address, among other matters, the question of the use of recycled land.
