Crime Prevention: Northern Ireland

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 17 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what projects have been undertaken by each of the community safety partnerships in Northern Ireland in the last 12 months. (242932)

Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) have delivered in excess of 450 local projects in 2007-08 and so far in this financial year (2008-09). Information is not held in a way that can identify projects undertaken only in the last 12 months.

The Northern Ireland Office Community Safety Unit (CSU) provided £2 million for local projects in the 2007-08 financial year and has allocated £2.025 million for the 2008-09 financial year. Under the terms and conditions of funding set out by CSU all projects must attract a minimum of 20 per cent. match funding for the projects delivered.

I have arranged for a list to be placed in the Library detailing all projects delivered in each CSP area for the 2007-09 financial years, how much these cost and a brief description of each.
