HC Deb 07 April 1998 vol 310 cc144-5W
Mr. Coaker

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions when the present Nottinghamshire County Council Structure Plan was agreed by the Secretary of State; and what is the earliest date it could be reviewed. [38233]

Mr. Caborn

Following legislative changes introduced in 1991 the Secretary of State is no longer responsible for agreeing local authority development plans, other than in very exceptional circumstances. The current Nottinghamshire Structure Plan Review was adopted by Nottinghamshire County Council in November 1996.

Since the reorganisation of Nottingham City as a unitary authority on 1 April, any review of the plan and its timing is the joint responsibility of Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County Council.
