(2) After section 71A insert-
"71B Duty as respects gardens and urban green space in exercise of planning functions
In exercise of any function under or by virtue of the planning Acts, the Greater London Authority Act 1999 (c. 29) or the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (c. 5), special regard shall be had to the desirability of preserving gardens, groups of gardens and urban green spaces."

""green space" means-

(4) Nothing in any guidance issued by the Secretary of State, a regional planning authority or other higher tier planning authority may be used by the Secretary of State to set aside a decision made in accordance with the adopted policies of a local planning authority for the protection and preservation of gardens or green space in their local authority area, unless the Secretary of State or planning authority can demonstrate that-

(a) it is essential in the specific case to the achievement of national housing targets; or(b) the decision of the local planning authority was improper.

(5) Nothing in this section shall be construed as-

(a) enabling the Secretary of State or higher tier planning authority to impose targets for local housing densities on a local planning authority in order to override the protection or preservation of gardens, or(b) interfering with permitted development rights."

On Question, Whether the said amendment (No. 129ZA) shall be agreed to?

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 135; Not-Contents, 128.
