An urban regeneration scheme by leading housebuilder Miller Homes has been hailed a stunning success as the last home was sold.

The construction team led by Michael Ramsbottom, and development sales adviser Pat Parkinson, have successfully sold all the properties at the award winning development, h2010 with sales in 2015 showing unprecedented demand for the remaining homes.

“Pat and Michael have played a huge part in the success of h2010 along with other staff that have worked hard to deliver a quality development and enjoyable house buying experience,” said Steve McElroy sales director Miller Homes Yorkshire. “Customers and residents have been most complementary about their experiences and are delighted to call h2010 home.”

Launched in 2010 the properties have been constructed with energy and water saving efficiencies in mind including the installation of a combined heat and power plant (CHP). Furthermore, the development is also a ‘Home Zone, where pedestrians are deemed more important in the traffic hierarchy, meaning it is a safe place for families to enjoy homes by the river.

The development has also scooped awards for ‘Best Brownfield development’ in the What House Awards in 2012 and has been constructed to meet the standards of the Code for Sustainable Homes which aims to reduce the impact of new homes on the environment.

“I am delighted with the success of this development and that we have brought new homes to this area,” said Steve. “The urban regeneration scheme has transformed this Brownfield site into a peaceful riverside oasis of family homes and contemporary apartments.”

Some 281 homes have been built on the former Brownfield site in partnership with Leeds City Council and Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

Miller Homes has several other developments located across the region with Stonebridge Fold at East Ardsley the closest to Leeds. A range of contemporary apartments and family homes are available from £89,995.
