The transformation of a former eyesore pub site at the heart of Bramley is continuing to gather pace.
The former Lord Cardigan pub was demolished in 2012 as part of the council’s derelict and nuisance property programme.
The site is currently being transformed with eight new two-bedroom homes by Wortley-based developers RDF Building Services.
They are ready to complete the roof on the first row of three townhouses, while groundworks and foundations for the second row of five homes are complete.
The council agreed to buy the properties from the developer last year to help meet local housing needs.
Executive member for communities, Councillor Debra Coupar said:
“We need to be innovative in how we provide much needed council homes. As well as building our own homes, if we can purchase new homes from developers in areas where demand exceeds supply then we’ll make that investment.
“It’s great to see work cracking on at such a pace and as always, we’re looking forward to welcoming tenants to their new homes.”
