Regional Planning and Development: West Midlands

Volume 471: debated on Friday 1 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what contribution to the revised West Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy house building requirements would be made in (a) Warwickshire and (b) Worcestershire as the result of the construction of an eco-town at Long Marston. (178883)

I am unable to comment on individual proposals at this stage. The number of homes in individual proposals is indicative at this stage, but ranges between 5-20,000 in most proposals, which is in line with the eco-town criteria. We intend to publish a shortlist soon, once an individual assessment of proposals has taken place. There will be considerable opportunity for consultation before decisions on individual proposals are made.
