The latest survey of local planning authority development plan work shows that steady progress is being made towards full coverage of local and unitary development plans by the end of 1996.

However, the environment department have said that some authorities are still finding difficulty in keeping to targets within the early stages of plan preparation.

Environment minister Sir Paul Beresford said: 'Local authorities need comprehensive and up-to-date local plans in place as quickly as possible if the benefits of a plan-led system of development control are to be realised.

'Despite the good progress being made by most authorities, the small but continuing rate of slippage is worrying', he said.
