holding answer 19 October 2001

Neighbourhood renewal is a devolved matter for Scotland. The National Strategy for Neighbourhood Renewal applies only to deprived areas in England.

The Scottish Executive will be publishing a Neighbourhood Renewal Statement for Scotland—due at the end of the year—which will set out a programme of action to regenerate disadvantaged neighbourhoods in Scotland.

We shall be seeking to ensure close contact between the English and Scottish approaches to Neighbourhood Renewal.
