A deal to turn an eyesore former pub site in Bramley into new housing – which will be bought by the council to be rented out as social housing – has received the final sign-off.
As previously reported in the YEP, the site of the former Lord Cardigan pub has been vacant since being demolished in 2012 by the council as part of its ‘nuisance properties’ programme.
Leeds City Council executive member for communities, councillor Debra Coupar, said: “We are very pleased to have agreed this deal with award-winning local builder and developer RDF Building Services to provide this much-needed new affordable housing in Bramley. It is a perfect example of regenerating a former derelict site.”
Rick Firth, managing director of RDF Building Services, added: “We are delighted to participate in the council’s initiative, which further enhances our continued growth in the social housing sector.”
