Greater flexibility needs to be incorporated within the wording of the policy. The Council already knows that viability is a key issue particularly with the WUE. To say "will" implies little or no flexibility - "should, subject to viability considerations..." would at least give a degree of flexibility that is necessary to such considerations.

The requirements in items 2, 3 & 4 under this policy are demanding particularly in the light of the present economic circumstances. Viability is the key consideration if the scale of both economic and residential development required for this District is to be achieved and the wording should be amended accordingly.
