A table providing a summary of priorities for each of the 39 New Deal for Communities areas and details of projects developed by the Communities partnerships for each area has been deposited in the Library of the House. The Department does not have a full picture of the completion of all projects across the programme, which is a matter for the individual partnerships, their successor bodies and, where different, the local authorities in those areas. The National Evaluation of the Communities programme, published in March 2010, concluded that the New Deal for Communities had delivered improvements and that, in general, they had narrowed the gaps with the rest of the country in relation to six broad themes: crime, health, worklessness, education, community cohesion, and housing and the environment. Three quarters of New Deal for Communities have agreed succession strategies so that the benefits and improvements made over the life of the programme can be sustained into the longer term.
