Find out more about new extra care flats in Beeston

Preferred Homes will be opening their first Extra Care Apartments in Leeds this Autumn. The 63 new affordable one and two bedroom apartments are being built on Hunslet Moor Road in Beeston, next to Pennington Court care home.

A community event is being held on Tuesday (2 July 2024) at Hillside on Beeston Road from 12:30-4pm. This is a chance to find out more about the scheme and what is on offer. This will be particularly interesting for people over 55 who are looking for new accommodation that retains theirr independence with the reassurance of care and support if or when they need it.

Hunslet Moor House will include generous community space to support residents’ social activities, whilst providing opportunities for residents, their guests and visitors to meet and enjoy a community café. The scheme will be managed on a 24-hour basis with care available to residents as required.

Preferred Homes will also be investing in a new community shop for Lakha Newsagent and General Store – run by Zaab, who has served the surrounding community for many years.

The housing allocation for Hunslet Moor House will be managed in partnership with Leeds City Council and their commissioning team.
