Thorpe Road-4

DESCRIPTION

The scheme of affordable homes is being developed in partnership with affordable housing provider Your Housing Group and the Homes and Communities Agency. The new scheme will provide 25 properties (2 and 3 bedroomed) in total. All of the homes will be built to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3.

The site is situated off Thorpe Road, Leeds and was purchased from Leeds City Council. The land is currently vacant and once built will provide valuable regeneration for the City.

The development is the result of partnership working between YHG, Leeds City Council and the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA). Funding has been provided by the HCA and YHG. The homes will be built by MCI Developments.

COMMENT

“This is a fantastic opportunity to build much needed high quality, affordable family homes in Leeds. This new development in Middleton will help to recognise Your Housing Groups vision of “transforming your lives and your communities, as well as enabling us to offer quality affordable homes for rent and shared ownership. Leeds is an area of growth for YHG and we look forward to partnership working as we have on this development, in the future.”

Stephen Haigh, Executive Director of Growth and Development at YHG.

“The start of new homes is great news for local people since they will provide much needed family accommodation for Leeds. I am really pleased that your investment of £166,000 is helping Your Housing Group provide these homes.  I look forward to visiting when the first home is opened.”
