Don Valley MP Caroline Flint said a proposed inland port expected to bring thousands of jobs to Doncaster must not be delayed by a public inquiry.
In a Westminster Hall debate Ms Flint said Doncaster Council approved plans for Rossington inland port in November, but that some outstanding highways issues were yet to be resolved.
The scheme, which will incorporate more than 500,000 sq m of warehouse space, has attracted opposition from four parish councils and the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), which is calling for a public inquiry.
Ms Flint said the outstanding issues could be resolved locally, and urged the Department of Communities and Local Government not to delay the project by calling it in for a decision from the secretary of state.
Communities Minister Shahid Malik said the DCLG did not interfere with local planning decisions unless absolutely necessary.
