The plans will regenerate the former Leeds City College, known as the Horsforth Campus, which has lain redundant since it closed in June 2017.
The affordable homes site aims to play a major role to ease local housing demand; Horsforth has the highest level of housing demand across the city of Leeds.
The new homes include a range of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes, with a significant number built to support independent living needs. The development will be gas-free, with each home fitted with air source heat pumps.
The plans will also help to create new green spaces for the use of residents, including a new natural area to protect and enhance local ecology, as well as additional tree planting and the cultivation of habitats for local wildlife.
Andrew Poyner, managing director of Vistry Partnerships Yorkshire, said: “We are delighted to once again be working with Stonewater to build these quality, new affordable homes for the local community. As a regeneration business, we specialise in transforming redundant, brownfield sites into vibrant new communities, and the Horsforth Campus is a classic example of such a project. We’re looking forward to getting work underway and working closely with Stonewater and the council throughout the project.”
