A planning application for the UK’s biggest fully modular council housing and apartment scheme to date, has been submitted by Leeds City Council and national building contractor, United Living. If approved, the scheme at Leeds Meynell (in Holbeck) will see 28 homes constructed in less than nine months, with the first residents moving in by early 2020.
All homes and apartments are scheduled to be in place by late autumn, with the final stages of construction to include the laying of roadways, paths and driveways. Exterior works including fencing and landscaping will then be completed by February 2020.
United Living has been appointed as the principal contractor for the development and is working in partnership with Premier Modular and William Saunders.
The 28 new homes will be constructed with a ‘fabric first’ approach so that the construction envelope is highly insulated for each property. A key objective of this project is to ensure energy efficiency and to lower fuel bills thus reducing fuel poverty amongst Leeds City Council tenants. On completion, the properties will be managed by Leeds City Council.
