A £55m package to revitalise Welsh communities was announced yesterday by the Welsh secretary, John Redwood, with money for investment, environmental improvements and social schemes.

All the money available under the Urban Programme, the rural initiative, projects of Regional and National Importance and Special Project schemes is being brought together under the Strategic Development scheme for 1994/95.

Announcing the package, Mr Redwood said the SDS would give local communities good backing for their plans: 'They can harness the local council, the private sector, charities and others to bring about improvements.

'More than half the projects I am annoucing today are supported by local strategies, compared with just over a quarter last year. I have approved these plans for up to three years so that local authorities involved can press ahead, knowing the money will be available,' said Mr Redwood.

Fourteen projects were approved yesterday including £13m for schemes in North Wales and £21.2 for the Welsh Valleys.
