All 10 of the areas shortlisted in December for phase two of the safer cities programme have been given the go ahead by junior Home Office minister Charles Wardle.

Mr Wardle said the competitive nature of bids received together with the commitment of additional resources from key local agencies means that projects can be set up in all the areas.

Two organisation have been chosen to run the projects: Crime Concern and the National Association for the Care and Rehabilitation of Offenders.

Crime Concern will manage projects in Blackburn, Burnley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Manchester, Merthyr Tydfil and Plymouth; and NACRO will manage projects in Leeds, Newcastle and Sheffield.

Projects will start to come on stream early in the New Year. Further waves of phase two projects are planned, but as safer Cities funding will be included in the Single Regeneration Budget from 1 April 1994, decision about future projects will be taken in conjunction with the DoE.
