§ 34. Mr. Walker-Smith
asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether priority of consideration is given, or is proposed to be given, to applications made under Section 80 of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, by persons with an effective by-law permission and building licence in respect of the land which is the subject of the application.
§ Mr. Silkin
Yes. Priority is given to all cases on which it is known that the applicant needs an urgent decision for any reason. A building licence already granted is accepted as making a decision urgent.
