Housing: Haringey

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 10 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government when Haringey council and Homes for Haringey will be given their full funding under the Decent Homes Programme for improvement to housing stock; and what the reasons are for the time taken to provide the funding. (175562)

The Department has been in discussion with Haringey council and Homes for Haringey since November 2007 over their bid for capital funding support to deliver a Decent Homes investment programme. The bid is a substantial one, and needs to be considered in detail. We aim to conclude our discussions and agree an overall funding total, and specific allocations for 2008-09 and 2009-10, for Haringey, by the end of January.
