HC Deb 18 May 1988 vol 133 c483W
51. Mr. Butler

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will give guidance to local authorities regarding the handling of planning applications for lorry parks in green belt land.

Mr. Waldegrave

Advice on the handling of all types of planning applications in the green belt is given in my Department's planning policy guidance note 2. A copy is in the Library. In green belt there is a general presumption against development, except for a narrow range of uses which are appropriate to such areas.
