KEEPMOAT Homes today apologised to residents in the South Parkway bungalows and acknowledged they have had to cope with “major disruption”.

A Keepmoat spokeswoman told the YEP: “We do appreciate the disruption created when starting a new site and work hard to communicate with local residents by holding events prior to starting on site to allow them to raise any concerns. The footpath along South Parkway has been closed whilst works are undertaken to form a new adoptable footpath.

“The official footpath closure is in place for reasons of health and safety to the public, however access [to the shops] is available from South Parkway and Kentmere Avenue. Unfortunately due to the dry weather, there is significant dust to manage. We are trying to minimise this by cleaning the road on a daily basis and using a number of other dust suppression methods. We acknowledge there has been major disruption to residents whilst the entrance work has been carried out and apologise for any inconvenience caused. Most of this work is now complete.”

Keepmoat is building a total of 178 new homes at South Parkway, with construction having started in September last year.

The scheme is part of a brownfield regeneration programme being carried out in partnership with Leeds City Council.
