HC Deb 21 April 1999 vol 329 c599W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many(a) Green Belt and (b) green barrier areas there are in Wales; and if he will make a statement. [80845]

Mr. Jon Owen Jones

There are currently no Green Belts in Wales and information on the extent of green barriers in Wales is not collected centrally.

Planning policy guidance on Green Belts in Wales is set out in the first revision of "Planning Guidance (Wales): Planning Policy" which was published on 7 April.

In future, planning guidance on Green Belts in Wales will be a matter for the National Assembly.
