Homes and Communities Agency: Eco-Towns

Volume 487: debated on Monday 2 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much of its growth budget the Homes and Communities Agency has allocated for expenditure related to eco-towns. (251725)

No allocations from the Growth Fund have been made by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) towards eco-towns as responsibility for eco-towns currently rests with Communities and Local Government. After decisions have been taken on which eco-town locations are going forward, we see the HCA being able to take a leadership role in helping to deliver some of the eco-towns and playing a major role in supporting local authorities on delivery.
