Armley residents can drop in and have their say on proposals for 32 new communtiy-led homes at a consultation event. Leeds Community Homes’ Lucy Meredith has the details…
Leeds Community Homes are planning to build 32 new homes along Mistress Lane in Armley.
We would also like to develop the greenspace around the site to benefit all the neighbours too.
We’d like to hear from people living locally, people who travel through the site and overlook it, so you can have a space that you love.
We’re holding an event to get to know the locals. There will be free refreshments activities for kids and a chance to have your say about the greenspace.
The event runs on the flat area outside Westerly Rise in Mistress Lane on Saturday 1 February, from 10.30am to 2pm.
If the weather’s wet we’ll be in the foyer. You can also tell us what you think with this online survey.
About the homes
These homes will be super insulated to reduce fuel bills and help with the climate emergency.
We’re using an innovative building technique which means the community can help to build them!
Some of the homes will be available to people on the council housing list, some could be rented directly through Leeds Community Homes and some could be bought through a part-ownership scheme.
Priority will be for people already living in Armley. The build is likely to start January 2021 and people could be moving in around January 2022.
If you’re interested in buying one of the part ownership homes, or you’d like to try out your skills with the community build element, then come along for a chat and a cuppa or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
