Volume 494: debated on Thursday 25 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether the responses received relating to the PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) stage one financial viability study of the eco-towns programme have been passed to the PwC team; and what provision there is for earlier comments to be taken into account during stage two of the study.

Alongside the final eco-towns planning policy statement, we will publish a Government response to the eco-towns consultation and a summary report of responses received, including those on the Financial Viability Study of the Eco-towns Programme.

Stage 2 of the work undertaken by our external advisers is a separate piece of work to look at generic delivery issues for eco-towns as proposals are pursued.
