§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the planning appeals in Wales since May 1997, in regard to which the Secretary of State for Wales has overturned the recommendation of the inspector; and if he will he make a statement. 
Mr. Jon Owen Jones
There have been no planning appeals in Wales under Section 78 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, decided since May 1997, where the inspector's recommendation has been 289W overturned. On two occasions since May 1997 the recommendations of inspectors on applications called in for determination under Section 77 of the 1990 Act have been overturned.
an application for a detached dwelling at Trefil, Tredegar, Blaenau Gwent where the application was refused contrary to the recommendation of the inspector
an application for six wind turbine generators at Cemmaes Wind farm, Mynydd y Cemmaes, Machynlleth, Powys where planning permission was granted for six turbines contrary to the recommendation of the inspector that only four be allowed.
Following the transfer of functions, this issue will be a matter for the National Assembly.
