Regional Planning and Development: Eastern Region

Volume 459: debated on Friday 20 April 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government which social, economic and environmental partners receive (a) subscription and (b) grant money from the East of England Regional Assembly; and at what total cost. (132245)

The East of England Regional Assembly (EERA) does not pay subscriptions to partnerships, nor does it provide grants for which organisations can apply. However, as part of its purpose to promote the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of the region, it does contribute its funds towards a range of initiatives undertaken by regional partners.

In 2006-07 EERA allocated approximately £150,000 towards the work of regional organisations which carry out social, economic or environmental initiatives, £75,000 of which was allocated to the East of England Sustainable Development Round Table and its associated Climate Change Partnership. Similar amounts are proposed for 2007-08. Further details of projects or partners which have received support from EERA are contained in its Annual Business Plans available at the EERA website.
