§ Dr. Cunningham
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he intends to make the appeal against refusal of planning permission for proposed residential development on land at Berrywood road, Sunston, Northampton, the subject of a local public inquiry.
§ Mr. Ridley
No. Both the appellants, Northampton Old Grammar School Foundation, and the local planning authority, Northampton borough council, have agreed to this appeal proceeding by way of an exchange of written representations and a site visit by the inspector. I am satisfied that the planning merits of the case can be satisfactorily assessed in this way.
