Housing: Infrastructure

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what progress has been made with the cross-cutting review of infrastructure requirements for housing as part of the comprehensive spending review announced by her Department on 20th June 2006. (125580)

I have been asked to reply.

The Government's response to the Barker Review announced the Government would conduct an HM Treasury led CSR07 Policy Review into Supporting Housing Growth to determine the infrastructure implications of housing growth in different spatial forms and locations, establish a framework for sustainable and cost-effective patterns of growth, and ensure that departmental resources across government are targeted appropriately to support growth. The review is ongoing and will report to Treasury Ministers ahead of the 2007 Comprehensive Spending Review.
