§ Lord Fearn
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What development funding has been allocated by the Government and the European Union to seaside resorts in 2002 to date. [HL722]
§ The Minister of State, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (Lord Rooker)
There are no specific allocations for seaside resorts. However, a number of resorts are located within Objective 1 and 2 and INTERREG areas and therefore will benefit from Euopean funding.
The readily available data for European Funding of projects in seaside resorts (broadly interpreted) is contained in the table below. The sums are grants approved during 2002 for projects located in or around coastal towns. Projects may (and often do) run for a number of years following approval.
Additional to the sums mentioned, there is match funding—which applicants provide from other, including non-public, sources.207WA

The grant shown above is for the project as a whole. 2 The Merseyside Festival of Golf is split between the major golf courses in the Southport area and also courses on the Wirral. The grant shown is for the project as a whole. 3 The Southport Seafront Action Plan project has been approved in principle but has not yet had an offer letter.
General note: Some projects are area-based and, although they do not name a seaside resort, it is intended that one or more resorts should benefit from the ERDF/ESF approval.
