Ingram Court in Holbeck is nearing the end of a major refurbishment and properties in the sheltered housing complex will be advertised in the next few weeks.
Ingram Court has been empty for some time, but has now been fully refurbished as part of the PFI funded housing regeneration programme. The scheme has a total of 23 flats, three of which have 2 bedrooms and have been adapted for disabled people; a further six flats also have two bedrooms and the remaining 14 are single bedroom flats.
The flats feature new room layouts, new kitchens, improved heating, insulation and security features. The complex also has a common room, quiet room, laundry and communal garden. Rents start from £63.32 per week for a one bedroom flat.
The flats will be let to applicants over 60 who require sheltered housing. An assessment will be completed as part of the letting process to make sure tenants have the right support package in place.
The flats will be advertised in the Leeds Homes magazine in the next few weeks. Applicants that have already expressed a preference for sheltered housing in Holbeck will receive a postcard alerting them to the opportunity.
The Council aim to inform successful applicants before Christmas with tenants moving in mid January 2015.
The Beeston Hill and Holbeck housing regeneration scheme will see a total of 275 new Council houses built and 383 refurbished. The scheme is being delivered by Keepmoat as part of the sc4L consortium.
