Paragraphs 4.20 to 4.22 raise the question of viability. Given that the document is

concerned to ensure that Section 106 and CIL costs do not compromise the

deliverability of development and regards it critical that the Local Plan is deliverable

and will not render development that comes forward unviable, at what stage will the

viability of the development of exceptional circumstances sites and the provision of

both necessary infrastructure to serve development and to make up deficiencies be

tested? The Council will need to be assured that the full infrastructure requirements

can and will be met before any Green Belt boundary changes are made and the

exceptional circumstances sites are allocated for development.
