To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, for what reasons his Department did not appeal Leicester City Council's refusal of planning permission for a road adjacent to Glen Parva young offenders institution; and what effect that decision will have on his plans for a secure college in the area.

The Secure College Pathfinder in Leicestershire will be the first of a new generation of establishments which will put education at the heart of youth custody, giving young people the skills, training and discipline to get their lives back on track.

An appeal was not lodged following refusal of planning permission for the temporary access road through Eyres-Monsell Park as an existing privately owned road, Tigers Road, was found to be a suitable alternative.
