English term or phrase:what is the meaning of *but only for one YYY estate of....*here
What will be the impact of this choice on council housing for future generations?
There should be a better chance of improvements to homes, BUT ONLY FOR ONE YYY ESTATE OF BETWEEN 1,000 AND 2,000 homes.
Explanation: "YYY estate" is a housing estate/development/project promoted and/or built by YYY. Any impact will only be on one such project.
