New Clause 46 — Regulations under section (Processing of planning applications by alternative providers): information

Housing and Planning Bill (Programme) (No. 2) – in the House of Commons at 1:30 am on 5th January 2016.

Alert me about debates like this

‘(1) Regulations under section (Processing of planning applications by alternative providers) may make provision—

(a) requiring responsible planning authorities to disclose information to designated persons;

(b) requiring designated persons to disclose information to responsible planning authorities or to other designated persons;

(c) restricting the uses to which information disclosed by virtue of paragraph (a) or (b) may be put;

(d) restricting further disclosure of such information.

(2) The regulations may make provision for designated persons or responsible planning authorities to be required to provide information to the Secretary of State.”—

(Brandon Lewis.)

This new clause provides that regulations under NC43 may provide for information-sharing (about, for example, the planning history for land to which an application relates), may restrict uses to which shared information may be put, and may require information to be provided to the Secretary of State.

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
