§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what grants have been, or are due to be made by the Rural Development Commission, for the county of South Yorkshire during 1989–90; and if he will list them.
§ Mrs. Virginia Bottomley
Under the 1989 rural development programme for South Yorkshire the Rural Development Commission has agreed in principle to support six projects:
- Rural Development Area Project Officer
- Sports hall extension
- Church Street/Bridge Street infrastructure link
- Resource centre
- Market extension
Bids for other specific projects will also be considered as they arise. Formal approval and timing of projects will depend on the availability of resources and consideration of detailed applications. The commission also offers grants within the rural development area for the conversion of redundant buildings.
