Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether her Department owns land in any of the 15 locations short-listed as possible eco-towns. (201839)

The Department for Communities and Local Government does not own land in any of the shortlisted eco-town locations. One of the Department's Agencies, English Partnerships, owns land in one of the shortlisted locations, Pennbury near Leicester. This is the Stretton Hall farmland site included in the portfolio of 96 sites which was acquired by English Partnerships from the Department of Health in April 2005 and forms part of the agency's Hospital Sites programme.
