Meeting housing needs

Our proposal will provide affordable housing that will be allocated for us by people with a local connection to the area.

Local Economy

Our proposals will support existing local businesses and help create additional employment through new opportunities for local sub-contractors and the supply chain.


Where there is a shortfall in available places, we may be required to provide financial contributions to fund any additional places required as a result of our proposals.
