HC Deb 08 July 2003 vol 408 c751W
Martin Linton

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he will make a statement on the impact on the Battersea constituency of his Department's housing and planning policies and actions since April 2001. [123669]

Keith Hill

The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister has called in three planning applications in the last two years where it was considered that a planning application conflicts with the guidance and advice on the provision of affordable housing in PPG3—"Housing", and Circular 6/98—"Planning and Affordable Housing". The affordable housing policy in Wandsworth council's draft revised Unitary Development Plan (UDP) has also been objected to.
