Mixed Communities Initiative

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 13 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will make a statement on the Mixed Communities Initiative. (76449)

The mixed communities approach is one element of our strategy to tackle concentrated deprivation and create sustainable communities for all. It brings together social, economic and physical regeneration, alongside essential improvements in public services, in order to transform failing communities into ones able to attract and retain households on a wide range of incomes. The Government are currently working with a number of locally led and managed projects in order to develop mixed communities in some of our most disadvantaged areas, while also testing out approaches to encourage mixed communities more widely. One such project is based in Coventry.
