Winter Gardens Project: Morecambe

Volume 496: debated on Monday 20 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what funding from the public purse has been given to the Winter Gardens Project in Morecambe since its inception. (287834)

The Single Regeneration Budget (SRB) funding the Winter Gardens in Morecambe started in 1996 and was managed by Government office for the north-west. The SRB Programme was passed to the North West Development Agency (NWDA) to manage, upon its inception in 1999. I am informed by the NWDA that the total SRB funding between 1996 and 2001 was £546,864, and that additional investments totalling £313,381 were made by the NWDA after the closure of the specific SRB.
