East of England Regional Assembly Suspends its Endorsement of the East of England Plan due to Lack of Central Government Funding

Press release issued by the East of England Regional Assembly

10 December 2004

The East of England Regional Assembly has voted to suspend its endorsement of the East of England Plan, launched this week, due to lack of central Government funding for essential infrastructure for the region.

The Public Consultation on the Plan will still go ahead in order to gauge response and gather comments on the development proposals.

The following statement has been released by the Assembly today.

"The East of England Regional Assembly deplores the Government's grossly inadequate funding of the transport infrastructure costs associated with the additional 478,000 houses planned for this region between 2001-2021.

Bearing in mind that the Assembly's acceptance of this massive growth was conditional upon adequate government provision of the necessary infrastructure; and mindful of Lord Rooker's repeated written assurances that growth will not be imposed without the associated infrastructure. This Assembly wishes to make clear that it now regards its endorsement of the draft East of England Plan as suspended, pending a re-examination of the Government's willingness to support its own aspirations adequately in financial terms."

The motion to suspend the Assembly's endorsement of the Plan was made by the Conservative Group of the Assembly and was passed by 43 votes to 30 votes.

The Assembly will send this statement to appropriate Government ministers. The statement will also be distributed with all further copies of the draft East of England Plan, displayed on the Assembly's website, and will be submitted to the independent panel examining the Plan at the end of the Public Consultation period.
