Infrastructure Planning: Funding

Volume 718: debated on Monday 29 March 2010


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have estimated the volume of national infrastructure project applications likely to be made by the 50 smallest councils; and whether they plan to provide assistance with the costs to the smallest councils. [HL2916]

The Government have not made any estimate of the volume of applications for nationally significant infrastructure projects likely to be made by the 50 smallest local authorities; we do not however generally anticipate that local authorities will submit such applications. Funding of such projects is a matter for the scheme promoter.
