Dear Mr Corder-Birch
Archaeological and Wildlife Surveys (Neighbourhood Planning and Infrastructure Bill)
Thank you for your letter of 5th August regarding your concerns about the Neighbourhood Planning and Infrastructure Bill, specifically relating to archaeological investigations/surveys.
I can appreciate your concerns and wanted you to know that I have now written on your behalf to Gavin Barwell MP, the newly appointed Minister of State at the Department for Communities and Local Government, enclosing a copy of your letter for reference and asking for his comments.
I will, of course, be in touch with you again once I receive a reply.
Rt Hon Mark Francois Member of Parliament for Rayleigh and Wickford
