Government respones to proposals submitted by local authorities to improve the social, economic and environmental well-being of their area.
In October 2009, the then Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government issued an invitation to local authorities under the Sustainable Communities Act to submit proposals which they believed would improve the social, economic and environmental well-being of their local area.
The first document gives the Secretary of State’s decisions on over 300 separate requests contained within the 199 proposals short-listed by the Local Government Association in December 2009.
The government announced its decisions on proposals submitted in response to the first invitation under the Sustainable Communities Act 2007 in December 2010. The second document provides an update on the actions set out in that response.
