Derelict Land: South East Region

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 17 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform how many hectares of brownfield land were (a) reclaimed and (b) redeveloped by the South East England Development Agency in the last year for which figures were available; and what the annual target range was for that indicator. (158116)

SEEDA is on target to remediate over 200 hectares of brownfield land over our three year corporate plan period 2005-08, which is within our target range for this output. A shortfall in 2006-07 was caused by delays with delivery of some large projects, which will create a surplus against the target range in 2007-08. SEEDA does not hold a specific record of when brownfield land is developed.
