Obviously there was something not correct - either procedurally or functional. Shame so much time and money has been spent on what the council have decided is not a viable and appropriate scheme.
Learn and move on - and lets reflect that Hillcrest isn't the only housing development under way in the Borough. Hillcrest not being developed in the way proposed does not mean an end to new council housing in the borough. So new homes will still come on to the register - being made available to those on the lists now, or who become priority at the time who might not already be on the lists.
And it was the council who decided to commission the additional report (albeit after some pressure from concerned groups) and I think all credit to the council for being able to make what is obviously a difficult decision once they had chance to review their own report's findings at such an advanced stage.
