Suburban Development Research

Volume 450: debated on Thursday 19 October 2006

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what funding within his responsibilities has been allocated to the Cambridge University Martin Centre for Architectural and Urban Studies on research into suburban development issues. (66301)

I have been asked to reply.

The Department made a contribution of £35,000 in October 2004 to the EPSRC SOLUTIONS (Sustainability of Land Use and Transport in Outer Neighbourhoods) project being carried out by the Cambridge University Martin Centre for Architectural and Urban Studies. This is an independent research project which is mainly funded by the academic research body looking at design, transport systems and the built form in cities. It has not yet reached any conclusions or recommendations.
