HC Deb 11 February 1998 vol 306 cc259-60W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what is his policy concerning(a) green barriers and (b) green belts. [28616]

Mr. Win Griffiths

Planning Guidance (Wales): Planning Policy, May 1996, encourages local planning authorities to consider designating Green Belts in the more heavily populated parts of Wales, and I have written to each authority asking them to give the matter serious consideration. Local planning authorities may include appropriate policies and proposals for green barriers in their development plans.
