New council housing could be built in Wortley and Armley as part of a city-wide £55 million pound scheme.
A report to be considered by the council’s decision-making executive board next week will hear of plans to build 50 council properties in Oldfield Lane, Wortley, and a further 13 in Heights Lane.
They’re part of plans to fund a total of 358 new general needs homes across the city.
A council report says:
“Through the proposals outlined in this report, the council will be able to deliver one of
its most ambitious council housing growth programmes over the next three years.
“The housing schemes detailed in this report represent the first phase of the council’s new build housing plans. Looking ahead, the intention is to continue to deliver at volume and at pace, with an aspiration to deliver [about] 300 new council homes per year on an ongoing basis.”
