To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will ensure that arrangements are made for an early hearing of the appeal against South Hams district council's refusal of planning permission for a mini-village of yurts at Allaleigh and against the enforcement notice requiring the occupants of the site to move out.

holding answer 2 February 2007

It has been necessary to postpone the inquiry that had been set up to consider the planning appeal on 1 March 2007, to enable the enforcement appeal made in relation to the same site, which covers essentially the same matters, to be heard at the same time. While the delay to the planning appeal is regrettable, this course of action will prevent the need for all parties to present similar arguments twice. The main parties have been offered 17 July as the opening day for the inquiry into both appeals.
