The list of buildings is attached. This shows progress in that schemes have been completed in 43 of the 71 towns and we now expect schemes to be completed in a further 12 this financial year. The works in a number of cases have formed part of larger schemes but the information on separate cost details cannot be found except at disproportionate cost.
