11. To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what recent assessment she has made of the performance of the East Lancashire housing market renewal pathfinder, Elevate. (206432)

All nine housing market renewal pathfinders are assessed for the Department by the Audit Commission on a regular basis. The most recent assessment of Elevate’s performance was made as part of the latest business planning round and published in February this year. This found that Elevate is performing well and continues to be in strong need of investment. As a result, we have announced funding of £150 million for the three-year period 2008-11.
