Work has started on building new council housing in Bramley.
Empty land off Broadlea Street is being transformed into 22 two-bedroom and two three-bedroom homes created, with work due be completed before the end of next year.
The development will also offer a number of employment and training opportunities including apprenticeships to be advertised locally.
Councillor Caroline Gruen (Labour, Bramley and Stanningley) said:
“We have a real need for affordable homes in the area and have been working to make sure new Council homes are built.
“With 22 new council homes in Bramley we are showing what can be achieved, not only in creating affordable houses, but showing that design quality and energy efficiency can be put in all new homes.”
The council is working with Kier Construction on the project.
