HC Deb 16 December 1982 vol 34 cc227-8W
Mr. Peter Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what has been the amount of grants given so far for the building of the breakwater in Bangor bay; what has been the total cost of the project so far; whether any further grants are planned towards the provision of a marina and the refurbishing of the seafront to complete the project; what is the estimated total cost of the project; and how much of this will be funded by grants and how much from the rates.

Mr. David Mitchell

The total cost of the breakwater project in Bangor bay is estimated to be £2.5 million. To date works costing £1.8 million have been carried out towards these costs. The Department of Economic Development has paid a grant of £800,000 and the European regional development fund has provided some £500,000.

The Department has no plans to make grants toward a marina or refurbishing the waterfront.
