Yorkshire developer to create £8m housing site in Leeds

A Yorkshire housebuilder has announced that it is redeveloping a brownfield site into a 49 home plot.

Keepmoat Homes and Places for People is creating the new £8m development at Seacroft Crescent in Pennine Crest.

The site, which was previously owned by Leeds City Council, and was acquired by Places for People from Keepmoat Homes in August last year, will offer a variety of house types along with new public open spaces.

It is part of the Leeds City Council Brownfield Programme, which is set to see more than 1,000 new homes built across 13 development sites in East Leeds.

Paul Oldridge, regional managing director at Keepmoat Homes, commented: “We are very excited to have started work on Pennine Crest.

“The site isn’t your typical new homes development, it is part of a wider regeneration project in East Leeds which represents a tremendous opportunity for the city’s growth, of which we will be delivering 10 out of the 13 developments.

“We have a strong track record of delivering new homes across the country, particularly on brownfield land such as this.

“We’ve brought our experience to this development and, working with Leeds City Council and Places for People, we’re breathing new life into the area and aim to make a big impact on the local community, delivering real value to not only those to choose to live there but also to the surrounding area.”

Nilam Buchanan, regional managing director at Places for People, said: “Pennine Crest will provide much needed affordable housing for people in Leeds on a former brownfield site.

“Alongside Keepmoat Homes and Leeds City Council, we will utilise our end-to-end expertise to create and manage a sustainable community for the long-term, with social value and people at its core.”
