Neighbourhood Renewal Fund

Lord Greaves asked Her Majesty's Government:

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Communities and Local Government (Baroness Andrews): There are six local authority districts in Lancashire which qualify for Neighbourhood Renewal

24 Jan 2008 : Column WA70

Fund (NRF) as follows: Blackburn with Darwen (unitary), Blackpool (unitary), Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle and Preston. The reporting requirements have varied over the period for which information is requested due to the introduction of Local Area Agreements (LAAs) in Lancashire with effect from 1 April 2006 when NRF was pooled in the two unitaries. The detailed performance management of projects funded by NRF has been the responsibility of local authorities, as accountable bodies, in consultation with their Local Strategic Partnerships.

The Government do not formally require reporting on the level of detail requested in the Question. The tables below reflect the information which local authorities were required to submit in their quarterly returns and statements of grant usage. In the current year, 2007-08, NRF is paid as part of the LAA grant and is unringfenced, meaning there are no separate reporting requirements.
