2. Reasons for Decisions
2.1 The overarching objective of regenerating Ebury Bridge Estate is to create a comprehensive renewal that brings about physical, economic and sustainable change that creates additional homes and improves the lives of residents, businesses and visitors alike.
2.2 Decisions around the delivery route for Phase 2 are to be taken in due course through an Outline Business Case and subsequent Cabinet Member Report that is currently being developed and due to be presented and formalised in December 2021.
2.3 The development of the Ebury estate will also help the Council deliver on its target of delivering more affordable homes across the borough. The scheme will deliver a minimum of 50% affordable housing across the masterplan.
2.4The approvals set out in this report are important to maintain a continuation of activity on the Ebury delivery programme because Phase 2 requires a design team to be appointed in order to work up detailed designs of the outline application and submit subsequent Reserved Matters applications which have to be cleared prior to start on site of the remaining phases.
