Council chiefs have released the first computer-generated image of the eight new council houses planned for the former Lord Cardigan pub site in Bramley town centre.
The Dispatch revealed last month that Leeds City Council had made a deal with Wortley-based developer RDF Building Services to buy a planned development for the former pub site, which was deemed one of the ten worst eyesores in Leeds and cleared earlier this year.
In a press release issued yesterday, the council says the deal will help meet local housing needs in the area, which has been identified as having a shortage of affordable two-bedroom homes.
Leeds City Council executive member for communities, Councillor Debra Coupar, said:
“It is an ideal location close to all key amenities and is a perfect example of regenerating a former derelict site into something new to help boost the local community.”
- Meanwhile, plans by Yorkshire Housing for the demolition of the existing building on Leeds Bradford Road/ Calverley Lane and the erection of 15 affordable houses and five open market houses have been submitted.
