Goldfields esperance projects share in govt funds, such as £1m for the Green Mountain Fund in 2011, from the Greenmount Trust to create a National Greenfield Centre for Engineering Education (NGCE) in Surrey. The projects received an extra £4.2m in funding this year, and a further £1.3m from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) this year.
The funding means that more than 20 projects are now backed by a national pool of nearly £100m.
Dr David Hargreaves, Head of우리카지노 the National Infrastructure Infrastructure Trust, said:
“There’s a lot of money waiting to be collected. The vast majority is now coming in. Some projects are attracting huge amounts of government money while others are barely moving ahead.”
Mr Edmonds added: “Many of these projects rely on investment and support from the City. It is vital the government acts now to get the greenfield sites going so we can all benefit.”
Last week the National Infrastructure Infrastructure Trust published figures showing that the public purse has yet to be properly spent on the greenfields, including £26.2m on the Bournemouth and Rotherham projects that had already been committed to the system. This funding was still insufficient to secure all the greenfield sites that remain empty.
“A year’s worth of progress and the public purse is already sitting on the shelf,” warned David Hargreaves. “N바카라ot having any money for greenfield projects in 2011 could have meant the site h바카라사이트ad to be shelved.”
In an attempt to address the backlog, a £3m-a-year commitment was made last year by the Minister for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Lord Deech.
In his autumn letter, Lord Deech pledged that £3m would be set aside annually to ensure that infrastructure could be delivered and delivered fast.
The Greenmount Trust plans to invest over $600 million in greenfields by 2015. The trust will also invest up to £150m over five years on public works, including new bridges and tunnels.
Mr Hargreaves said: “Our funding system has been working perfectly well for many years and will continue to do so. If we have to go further, we can do it in a more cost effective and sustainable way. We are now looking at various ways to better ensure that all funding of greenfields is used effectively and efficiently.”
