Economic benefits

There were local construction employment opportunities throughout the construction phases.

Social benefits

As well as much needed housing this project brought historic buildings up to date and allowed the public to access new open spaces.

Environmental benefits

These include the creation of new public open spaces, the planting of new trees and many new footpaths throughout the site. As part of gaining planning permission, Banks Property also secured a licence in 2005 to remove bats from part of one of the buildings on the site and created a bespoke bat habitat. See: DCC Planning Services Committee Report for details
