Join New Wortley Housing Association for their end of summer barbecue

New Wortley Housing Association (NWHA) are holding a barbecue at Holdforth Place to mark the end of summer this Thursday, 12th September, writes Keely Bannister.

Members of the community are invited to enjoy free food and drinks and learn more about the associations plan for community-led housing in the locality.

NWHA are looking to build a variety of housing on several pieces of land at Holdforth Place in New Wortley including:

  • 15 three-bed houses arranged in five blocks of three at the end of Holdforth Gardens and Bruce Lawn.
  • 7 accessible two-bed flats for over 55s in a split level two-and-a-half storey block at the end of Holdforth Place.
  • 1 two bed duplex at the end of Holdforth Place.

They have also identified potential land for up to 140 units in the local area and have opened discussions with Leeds City Council who own the land to release it for a potential second phase for this exciting project.

New Wortley Housing Association (NWHA) is a subsidiary of New Wortley Community Association (NWCA), a local charity that has major ambitions to improve the quality of life for residents of New Wortley.

In recent years it has attracted over £2.2 million of direct investment into the area, creating 20 jobs for local people and helping 36 volunteers into work. The community suggested building new housing on the estate and this project has evolved from these initial conversations.
