Work has started to build 25 new council houses at a site on Garnet Grove in Beeston.
South Leeds Life previously reported on the planning application and the views of neighbouring residents whose request of open space within the development was rejected by Leeds City Council.
Apart from providing new homes, will also offer a number of employment and training opportunities including apprenticeships to be advertised locally.
The 19 two-bed and 6 three-bed houses will be built to the Leeds Standard in terms of design and quality, as well as embodying the best in design for sustainability, space and energy efficiency.
The scheme is the latest to begin through the council’s ambitious programme of new build council housing, working with Kier Construction Limited as the development partner across three sites in the city.
The houses are expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
