South Leeds Life understands the council plans to build 25 two and three bedroom homes with gardens for rent to replace the 150 back to back houses that were demolished two years ago.
Some residents have expressed a desire for a communal garden space, but Councillor Patrick Davy disagrees:
“Whilst this ward needs more green space, it desperately needs new housing, particularly family housing with gardens. I do have concerns that 150 houses were demolished and the net result is that we have 125 fewer homes than previous, though admittedly better. I would not therefore support the dilution of this number any further by the provision of community green space.”
Local residents have been invited to the drop in event takes place at The Vale Circles Centre (formerly Tunstall Road Community Centre) on Tuesday 20 January between 4-7pm. The plans and a feedback form will also be available at the Dewsbury Road One Stop Centre on the 21 and 22 January 2015.
