3. Cabinet considered, subject to 1 above, the assessment of proposals to establish a garden community in Rutland as set out in Appendix 2 and agrees that: (a) the evidence available regarding the proposals to create a new community at Woolfox does not demonstrate that these are viable and deliverable; and (b) the evidence available regarding the proposals to create a new community at St. George’s demonstrates that these are viable and deliverable on the basis that Housing Investment Fund support is now confirmed.
