Equalities and Health Impact Analysis (EHIA)

The EHIA (PDF, 2.9mb) (August 2020) considers the potential effects, including health effects, likely to be experienced by those living and working in the community in light of their ‘protected characteristics’ under the Equality Act 2010.

The EHIA for the Final Option (December 2020) (PDF, 3.2mb) considers the above based on the updated final designs.

Options Appraisal including Cost Benefit Assessment

The Cost Benefit Assessment considers an economic assessment of outcomes related to public space, housing, council tax payments and jobs delivered as part of works or development on the estate. These are monetised and sit alongside qualitative outcomes related to the local economy, environment, community and changes related to moving home.

See the Cost Benefit Assessment report (September 2020) (PDF, 543kb) with addendum for Final Option (January 2021) (PDF, 194kb).

Viability Assessment

The viability assessment uses a financial model to compare the costs and income of the five options and to understand its financial viability.

See the Viability Assessment reports for each of the options:
