Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Planning Bill: Second Stage (22 Jan 2013)

Alex Attwood: I beg to move That the Second Stage of the Planning Bill [NIA 17/11-15] be agreed. I thank the Business Office for enabling the Second Reading to occur today.  Subject to the will of the Chamber, I wish the Environment Committee well in assessing the contents of the Bill, which are, by and large, very familiar to them given the passage of the Planning Act in the previous mandate. Reform in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Planning Applications: Foyle (6 Nov 2012)

Alex Attwood: ...forward plan-led development.  That is only one aspect of what I am trying to do in the Department, namely to have the most radical reshaping of planning in a generation.  That is what the planning Bill that I hope to bring to the Chamber before Christmas will do.  That is why we have a new senior management team.  That is why, when we went out for consultation last week on permitted...

Localism Bill — Report (6th Day) (Continued) (12 Oct 2011)

Lord Reay: ...the costs incurred by local authorities contesting appeals in wind farm development cases, the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, chided me for introducing an inappropriate discussion of energy policy into a planning Bill. I could now say the same about the noble Lord's friends who are moving this amendment. As the noble Baroness more or less explained, the intention of these amendments is to impose...

[Mr Joe Benton in the Chair] — Backbench Business — The Future of Pubs (9 Dec 2010)

Glyn Davies: ...being turned down when everyone knows that it makes no sense to do so. This is to do with the whole gamut of rural services, not just local pubs. I look forward to the Protection of Local Services (Planning) Bill, which will receive its Second Reading in the new year. It will be a really interesting Bill for all Members, as it will show what we are prepared to do to protect rural services....

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (1st Day) (5 May 2009)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...of the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, is to get the right relationship between the IPC and MMO and on that basis, they are very much appreciated. I know that those of us who debated this matter on the Planning Bill and in Committee on this Bill have different views about the role of the IPC in relation to consents above 100 megawatts. We debated the principle when the Planning Bill went...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (5th Day) (23 Feb 2009)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: .... We will take steps to ensure that the two bodies work well together. The noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, asked about the threshold, which we also debated extensively during the passage of the Planning Bill. She will note that, being set at 100 megawatts, the threshold is in contrast to the 50 megawatts that applies on land, because renewable generating stations in the marine area are larger...

Energy: Renewables (EUC Report) (20 Nov 2008)

Lord Davies of Oldham: ...nothing to hit the targets, especially given that—as the noble Lord, Lord Dixon-Smith, was, from his vast experience, able to point out—it will be a little time before the arrangements under the Planning Bill bear fruit. However, without them we would have been severely constrained, so I am delighted that in the week that this important report is being debated we are celebrating the...

Planning Bill (10 Nov 2008)

Earl Cathcart: ..., as my noble friend has said, that the expertise of the MMO is put to good use and that it should provide advice on both coastal and offshore applications that impact on the marine environment. The Planning Bill is vital, as I have said, but it is only part of the jigsaw puzzle. The other pieces, as has been said, are the Climate Change Bill, the Energy Bill and, soon, the marine Bill, as...

Energy Bill (28 Oct 2008)

Lord Oxburgh: ...slow, for two reasons. The first is delay in obtaining planning decisions. In one case, an important overhead power line took 14 years to obtain consent. This problem is being addressed by the Planning Bill that is at present before this House. Today's amendment relates to a second delay—namely, in connecting new generating capacity to the grid. The grid has to be reinforced and...

Planning Bill (16 Oct 2008)

Lord Greaves: ...no doubt some of them are. At least I hope that some of them are; I hope that mine is, for a start. The real reason they are in the Bill is that they are local planning authorities, and this is a planning Bill. If local authorities had nothing to do with planning, they would not be in this legislation, however good they are at representing their communities. It emphasises the importance of...

Business of the House: Department of Energy and Climate Change (16 Oct 2008)

Ed Miliband: In the end, this is a matter for local decisions. We have taken action in the Planning Bill to speed things up, but this issue is not easy. I know, from the experience in my constituency, that people worry about the impact of wind farms on the value of their houses and so on. The problem is that, as always with these things, if we do not act on questions of renewable energy— the hon. Member...

Planning Bill (14 Oct 2008)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...disposal of higher-activity radioactive waste. We have not yet taken a final decision, but the Government believe that the implementation of geological waste disposal would benefit from the Planning Bill reforms, which could assist the delivery of agreements with local communities. If the Government decided that that was the right approach and that it would be sensible to embrace...

Planning Bill (15 Jul 2008)

Lord Livsey of Talgarth: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her courtesy in opening this Second Reading debate on the Planning Bill. It concentrates on large infrastructure projects and is an England and Wales Bill. I want to point that out because I am a spokesperson on Welsh affairs. Obviously, there is a need to expedite some projects within defined time limits. Projects such as TGV-type rail electrification...

Planning and Energy Bill (13 Jun 2008)

Lord Judd: ..., will forgive my saying so, I think that he has got his timing wrong because it would have been much better to look at the necessity for such a Bill after we had had our deliberations on the Planning Bill, for which we are all waiting. The Bill leaves many issues unresolved. It spells out some important principles, but there are a number of issues which are the real challenge. I like the...

Energy Bill (21 May 2008)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: ...limited to only a few aspects of our energy future but it is nevertheless necessary and is, as most noble Lords have said, very urgently needed. Taken together with the Climate Change Bill and the Planning Bill, it is the outcome of the Government at long last beginning to make up their mind and give a lead on the many practical changes that have to be made in the energy field. Airy...

Wind Turbines (22 Apr 2008)

Keith Simpson: .... The question of offshore and inshore wind turbines is obviously controversial at the local level because, not least in my constituency, there is a suspicion that the Government are using the Planning Bill to take responsibility for planning away from local communities; indeed, if a project is deemed to be of national significance, it may be possible to fast-track it. Many people in...

Environment: Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (3 Apr 2008)

Lord Marlesford: ...very important statement that it was government policy to protect the countryside for its own sake. Perhaps the most urgent question on which I hope the Minister will shed some light is whether the planning Bill, which I assume will reach us in the summer, will invalidate in any way that crucial PPS 7 on sustainable development in rural areas or Section 85 of the CROW Act, to which my...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 36 (26 Feb 2008)

Malcolm Wicks: ..., primarily of course, through the planning system and environmental impact assessments. A developer will have to satisfy the local authority or the infrastructure planning commission—should the Planning Bill go through—that  the environmental impact is appropriate and limited. This is the correct stage at which to undertake a full environmental assessment. Will the hon. Member for...

Points of Order: Treaty of Lisbon (No. 2) — (2nd Allotted Day) (30 Jan 2008)

John Hutton: ...the tidal estuary of the River Severn, the second largest project of its kind in the world. There are many more important renewables projects in the planning system. The successful passage of the Planning Bill currently before the House will be vital to reduce delays in making the best projects happen. However, it is obvious that we will need to redouble our efforts to reach the 2020...

Orders of the Day: Energy Bill (22 Jan 2008)

Emily Thornberry: ...by 2050. The committee will give much-needed guidance and advice, in order to ensure that we push the renewables agenda forward. Finally, the independent planning commission, contained in the Planning Bill, will play an important role in ensuring that applications for wind energy are dealt with swiftly and efficiently. However, we still have too many self-imposed obstacles in our way. The...
