Sustainable Communities Act 2007

Volume 717: debated on Wednesday 3 March 2010


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government when they will decide on which economic, social and environmental well-being projects will be implemented under round one of the Sustainable Communities Act 2007; and how many they intend to approve. [HL2224]

The Government are consulting the Local Government Association (LGA) in its role as selector under the Sustainable Communities Act 2007 and are seeking to reach agreement on which of the 199 shortlisted proposals should be implemented. Many of the proposals are complex and raise significant practical issues but the Government are anxious to make progress as quickly as possible on those proposals that offer practical benefits and new ways of meeting local needs.
