The Commission today welcomed the announcement by Environment Secretary, John Gummer.
John Banham, Chairman of the Commission said: 'The commission favours the speeding of the review and has already considered the practical issues involved in completing it by the end of 1994.
'We particularly welcome the emphasis on local authorities coming forward with agreed proposals for change, and on the 'paramount importance' of the views of local people.
'The Commission will consider the proposed changes to the Policy and Resources Guidance at its meeting on 14 - 15 October and will let the Secretary of State have its views as he has requested.'
