The government has proposed Brighton, Bristol, Coventry and Leeds for funding under the second round of the URBAN community initiative of the European Commission.

If successful, these four areas will receive a share of £14.5 million, whilst the Leasowe area of Merseyside will receive an additional £1.7million.

Announcing the decision Urban Regeneration Minister David Curry said: 'I am delighted to put forward another four cities for URBAN funding and I look forward to working with the successful areas to draw up effective plans for these funds. Narrowing down the nominations involved difficult choices with so many deserving cases.

'Unfortunately the limited European funds available to us mean that we can only put forward four areas for consideration.

'The URBAN Initiative will complement the Governments initiatives to promote sustainable regeneration and economic development through improvements to the quality of life.'
