Growth and Infrastructure Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 4:15 pm on 6th December 2012.

Alert me about debates like this

‘(1) In section 60 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (planning permission granted by development order) after subsection (2) insert—

“(2A) Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (1), where planning permission is granted by a development order for development consisting of a change in the use of land in England, the order may require the approval of the local planning authority, or of the Secretary of State, to be obtained—

(a) for the use of the land for the new use;

(b) with respect to matters that relate to the new use and are specified in the order.”

(2) In section 70A(5) of that Act (“relevant application” includes an application for approval under section 60(2)) after “60(2)” insert “or (2A)”.’.—(Nick Boles.)

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