Abbey Mills – Kirkstall group pushes for community led housing

As Shelter produce their report calling on government to build 3 million social houses over the next 20 years, Kirkstall Valley Development Trust is looking to kick off with the first 25, writes Adele Rae.

The Trust wants to develop over 55s social housing on the Abbey Mills site at Kirkstall Bridge alongside a community hub. We want to minimise car use and bring together a group of people that will create a real community on the site.

Accent Housing have agreed to support the Trust and we will be bidding to Homes England for feasibility money to design the scheme.

A launch meeting of interested residents will be held at 7.30pm on Thursday, January 17th at the Kirkstall Leisure Centre – details here.
