Mr. Sanders: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what resources his Department has provided to local authorities to make proposals under section 2 of the Sustainable Communities Act 2007. 
Mr. Malik [holding answer 20 July 2009]: The additional costs falling on local authorities as a result of their responsibilities under section 2 of the Sustainable Communities Act 2007 were taken into account in the spending plans announced as part of the comprehensive spending review 2007. The Act provides a valuable opportunity for local authorities to make proposals which they consider, with their local communities, would contribute to promoting sustainability of local communities. In October 2008, the Secretary of State invited local authorities to submit such proposals, via the Local Government Association by 31 July 2009.
Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what provisions of the Sustainable Communities Act 2007 have been taken into account in planning guidance issued to planning authorities; and if he will make a statement. 
John Healey: The Sustainable Communities Act received Royal Assent in October 2007 and its implementation is part of the drive to involve citizens and communities in making proposals that will promote the sustainability of their area, that need central Government to act to enable them to do so.
CLG has produced a plain English guide to the Act which is available on our website. In October 2008 the Secretary of State invited local authorities to submit proposals via the Local Government Association (LGA), which we have appointed as 'the selector'. Proposals must reach the LGA by 31 July 2009.

Traveller sites in the green belt are inappropriate development, as defined in planning policy guidance note 2: green belts. An application for inappropriate development will be acceptable in planning terms only if the benefits of the development would be greater than the harms, and if very special circumstances exist to justify a grant of permission.
