§ Mr. Gorst
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if his decision to overrule his inspector's recommendation against granting planning permission to Home-Pac Limited of London, N.W.7 involves a change of Government planning policy with regard to protecting the residential amenities of North-West London.
§ Mr. Guy Barnett
The appeal against refusal of planning permission for two chimneys was dealt with at the same inquiry as two appeals against enforcement notices relating to a chimney which had been erected. There were complicated legal issues to be considered. It was also necessary to go back to the principal parties about a challenge to the validity of the notices in the light of proceedings in the High Court which the council had initiated on an earlier decision relating to the same development.
