Regeneration in the newspapers: 14 August, 2009

Reports that Edinburgh's tram project could be delayed and an examination of the problems caused by Japanese Knotweed feature in our round-up of today's newspapers.

Edinburgh’s tram project may be delayed until 2013

According to The Scotsman, Edinburgh’s delayed tram project may not be completed until 2013 and is expected to breach its £545 million budget. 

New data suggests that hopes that the housing market has emerged from its slump could prove premature, the Financial Times reports.

A feature in the Guardian examines the problem of Japanese Knotweed, which it describes as the nearest living thing to a triffid – the plant, which can push through concrete and tarmac, is infesting UK cities and it is estimated that it will cost £2.6 billion to clear.

In a column in the Daily Telegraph, Jeff Randall argues that Labour’s employment policies have been a disaster and will lead to the party losing the next general election.
