Regeneration the northern way


John Prescott has revealed a raft of further measures as part of his Communities Plan that he claims will deliver urban regeneration in the north of England.

The report - 'Making it Happen the Northern Way' - includes a package of measures designed to alleviate the oversupply of housing in the north and trigger economic growth in the region's main cities.

The proposals include an investment of £156 million over two years for housing on Tyneside and Merseyside, £89 million for new urban parks across the region and £10 million additional cash for the Coalfields Enterprise Fund.
