Leeds plans 2020 completion for partnership’s 59-home proposals 

One of the Leeds schemes

Leeds council has appointed Willmott Dixon to build 59 affordable homes designed by the Halsall Lloyd Partnership that are earmarked for two districts in the east of the city.

The contractor is expected to complete the homes, split between sites at Gipton and Osmondthorpe, by July next year. 

The £9m job is part of the council’s Housing Growth Programme, which aims to contribute more than 300 new council homes towards the city’s overall annual target of 1,230 new affordable homes from 2019.

Willmott Dixon said the two developments were among the first social housing the council has started in the last 20 years.

The Halsall Lloyd homes were granted planning permission in December last year.
