Overview

The New Towns Act 1981 s1 provides that the Secretary of State may make an order designating an area as the site of a proposed new town if he is satisfied, after consultation with any local authorities who appear to him to be concerned, that it is expedient in the national interest that the area should be developed as a new town by a corporation established under the Act.
