Yorkshire housebuilders have broken ground on a development of 52 family homes being brought to life in West Leeds.
The start of building work on the £15 million development in Woodhall View, near Pudsey, heralds the start of the most ambitious project to date launched by Berkeley DeVeer.
No fewer than 15 of the 22 homes being built as part of the first phase have already been reserved.
To mark the milestone, Berkeley DeVeer has pledged once again to support Pudsey Bear and this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal by donating £1,000 to the charity for every new reservation made between now and Christmas.
Last year, the developers from Walton, near Wetherby, handed over £7,000 thanks to a similar initiative.
Its managing director, Daniel Newett, said:
“Pudsey Bear is synonymous with the area, putting the town on the worldwide map, and lays claim to being the local community’s most famous resident.
“So it seems fitting that our programme of support for charities and good causes, especially those helping young people, should again centre on Pudsey Bear and this year’s Children in Need Appeal on Friday.”
