To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what support was provided to Cramlington Land Partnership by the Government in 2005-06; and what the nature was of the land that the partnership developed in relation to this funding. (108382)

Cramlington Land Partnership was offered an ERDF grant of £279,260 against eligible expenditure of £1,117,040 on 16 December 2003 under the North East Objective 2 Programme 2000-06 to refurbish an existing building to create a total of 12 units with improved parking and vehicle loading facilities. The offer was further increased to a total of £321,854 against total eligible costs of £1,287,416 and the creation of a further three units on 4 July 2005. The project was completed in September 2006.

The refurbished building was already located on brown field land (0.95 ha) but the project costs did not include any further development of the land.
