Consultation on UK eco-towns

Consultation on UK eco-towns
A new consultation is set to take place regarding the building of new eco-towns in the UK.

The Communities and Local Government (CLG) department has requested responses to its proposals, which have been outlined in a new review.

Between now and 2011, £60 million of government funding will be used to build the eco-towns and individuals and businesses have the chance to suggest how these funds will be allocated.

The CLG department stated: "The proposals in this consultation paper set out the potential areas which funding support to local authorities could address.

"Subject to the consultation, it is envisaged that [councils] with a location with the potential to have an eco-town would then prepare programmes of development for the eco-town to support funding bids."

The government recently named North West Bicester in Oxfordshire, Rackheath in Norfolk, St Austell in Cornwall and Bordon-Whitehill in Hampshire as the first four locations for eco-towns to be created.
