1 If the Tesco development goes ahead 86 social housing flats will be demolished. Who is going to pay for rehousing the tenants, Tesco or Kirklees?

2 Has Kirklees Housing a policy for replacing these flats or has it so many homes that none are required?

3 Will any councillors complain about housing land being used for a store?

4 Is the land that Richmond Flats are on to become a bus station?

5 Tax staff at Crown House are moving away. Will this site become part of Tesco?

6 Various developments are at the planning stage, eg Waterfront, Kingsgate extension. Can the roads absorb the extra traffic?

7 Several Kirklees departments will need to move; to where?

8 Kirklees’s stated aim is to attract tourists/shoppers to Huddersfield. If the sports centre is built on the Springwood car park, out of the 700-plus spaces how many will remain for public use?

9 The age of buildings under threat from regeneration is getting younger; what next?

10 If the estimated cost exceeds £26m will Tesco pay the excess?

11 How much revenue will Kirklees lose as parking spaces disappear and income from the 86 flats is lost?
