Town and Country Planning Association: Finance

Volume 497: debated on Wednesday 21 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to page 21 of his Department's Resource Accounts for 2008-09, HC 449, how much his Department has budgeted for payment to the Town and Country Planning Association in 2009-10 for work on eco-towns. (294658)

We are currently agreeing an eco-towns work plan with the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) as we move into the implementation stage of the Eco-towns programme, following publication of “Planning Policy Statement: eco-towns”. As part of this the TCPA will complete the series of best practice worksheets to support those taking forward eco-towns, and we have allocated £22,000 in 2009-10 for this work.
