§ Lord Fearn
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What plans they have to enhance or develop the waterfront and beaches of Merseyside. [HL4752]
§ The Minister of State, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (Lord Rooker)
A number of local authorities and agencies in the north-west are closely involved in taking forward programmes and plans to enhance or develop the waterfront and beaches of Merseyside. These include particularly the Mersey Basin Campaign, which is sponsored by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, which is a very successful water quality and waterside regeneration initiative, and the Mersey Waterfront Regional Park Programme, which is supported by the Government Office for the North West and the North West Regional Development Agency.
