· a social impact assessment;
· proposals for the refurbishment rather than demolition of existing homes as well as for the provision of new homes through infill development;
· proposals for the creation of new community facilities. improving green spaces and car parking;
· a financial viability study to support the proposals and delivery of social-rent homes;
