Government pares back spending to just the essentials?
ALMOST Â£2m is being spent preparing up to 10 sites in the Teesside area for housing. The cash has been allocated by the Government to Tees Valley Unlimited (TVU) through Tees Valley Living to carry out the work. The funding to the regeneration group is one of 45 such payouts across the country from the Governmentâ€™s Growth Point funding. The money will be spent over the next year on feasibility studies... [Oh I see, not actually building any houses, just throwing money at consultants to tell us that yes, houses need to be built.]
