Leeds City Council has agreed a deal with the developers to free up brownfield land for around 1,000 news homes. The homes will be built across 13 sites in Seacroft, Halton Moor and Osmondthorpe.
Keepmoat operations director Ian Hoad said: “We are actively expanding our presence in West Yorkshire, where we see a real appetite for new homes. With 95% of our developments built on brownfield land we are perfectly placed to deliver this scheme and we’re thrilled to have been selected as chosen developer alongside Strata.
“Working in partnership with Strata will allow us to accelerate the delivery of these new homes, with the target of achieving 150 properties per annum in line with the council’s clear requirements to deliver at scale, pace and quality.
“We aren’t just taking one development in one part of the region. We are completely overhauling three neighbourhoods and potentially putting nearly 1,000 families in the region on the property ladder.”
Planning applications are expected later in 2016 with work starting on site in 2017.
