To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether (a) Ministers and (b) officials in his Department have had any meetings with (i) Simon Hoare, (ii) CGMS, (iii) Freshwater UK, (iv) Intermodality LLP, (v) BNP Paribas Real Estate, (vi) Helio Europe and (vii) Bircham Dyson Bell LLP since May 2010; and whether he has received any recent representations from each such individual or organisation since May 2010.
Details of meetings held by DCLG Ministers between May 2010 and October 2011 are available on our website at:
Details of meetings held after October 2011 will be published in due course. The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, my right hon. Friend Mr Pickles, has held no discussions about the proposed Radlett Strategic Rail Freight Interchange.
A list of the representations received about the Radlett Strategic Rail Freight Interchange planning since May 2010 will be published when the Secretary of State issues his decision on the appeal.
A number of officials within the Planning Directorate have met with Bircham Dyson Bell to discuss the major infrastructure planning regime. There has not been any discussions on specific planning cases.
The work involved in establishing whether the Department has had any meetings with or representations from all these organisations would incur disproportionate costs.
