Sustainable Communities Plan

The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) advised journalists that the Deputy Prime Minister was in Manchester today to launch the Sustainable Communities Plan. The report, Making It Happen – The Northern Way, outlined plans to work closely with regional development agencies and regional planning bodies to quicken the pace of growth and development in cities such as Sheffield, Newcastle, Liverpool and Leeds. The package included: £69m over two years to revive the housing market in Newcastle and Gateshead; £86m over two years to revive the housing market in Merseyside; working with three northern regional development agencies to develop the idea of a Northern Way which exploited existing inter-regional economic and transport corridors in the North.
