Leeds suburb gets shot in the arm from new homes scheme

Have your say

A RUN-DOWN part of the Little London area of Leeds has been given a new lease of life with the completion of a £1.8m affordable homes project.

Holborn Court comprises 15 flats and two wheelchair-accessible bungalows that have replaced a number of derelict council-owned bedsits. All 17 properties have already been leased to tenants.

The development has been delivered by Leeds-based housing association Unity Homes and Enterprise in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency and Leeds City Council. Unity Homes and Enterprise chief executive Ali Akbor said: “The flats, built in three separate blocks, are of the highest quality and the feedback received from tenants has been incredibly positive.

“We are especially proud of the bungalows which have been specifically designed for people who find it difficult to get around. Very few housing associations are directing resources to this type of property.”
