Cardigan Green, Bramley

​We have purchased 8 new 2 bedroom houses from a private developer as part of our Council House Growth Programme.

The new homes on this site were handed over in December 2016.

They are built to high standards using quality materials including:

  • Increased insulation and double glazed windows to reduce heating and costs
  • Open plan living and dining areas to create spacious and well lit houses

The homes also have a positive impact on the local community and will improve the quality of life for the tenants. They will contribute to our vision of being the best city to live in and the best city for health and well-being.

The new homes have been let under a local lettings policy in consultation with councillors, tenants and residents and we only let them to tenants who can demonstrate an excellent tenancy record.


To be considered for one of our new homes you must have an application registered on our Leeds Homes Register. You will have to place a bid when properties are advertised by Leeds Homes. Find out more on

​Our new homes are more than simply bricks and mortar. We want to build stronger neighbourhoods where people are proud to live and take pride in being part of the local community.

We will allocate our new homes to people who meet their responsibilities as tenants, and who do not cause problems for their neighbours

Before we offer one of our new homes we will look at your tenancy record. We will check:

you have a good rent payment history; 

you have kept the property where you live in a good condition. This includes outside areas as well as inside your home (for example gardens or areas you share with neighbours).

you do not have a history of anti-social behaviour, causing nuisance or creating environmental issues.

We will also visit you at home and carry out an inspection of your property.

Click to expandWhen can I bid for the new homes?

​Our new homes will be advertised during summer 2017 in the Leeds Homes magazine and on the website www.leedshomes.org.uk.

You can sign up for text alerts when the properties appear in the Leeds home flyer and on the website.

We just need your name your phone number and the development you want to receive the text alert for.

Click to expandHow much will they cost to rent?

​The funding condition for the new homes means that tenants will pay an affordable rent in line with the rent currently paid by housing association tenants.  This is higher than social rent paid by most council tenants but lower than market rent.  The homes will be very energy efficient and we anticipate that tenants will make savings on their energy bills which will offset the additional rent.

Click to expandCan I buy one of the new homes?

​Our new homes are for letting only. None of them are available to buy or for shared ownership.

If you become a tenant then you may qualify for the right to buy, although special rules will apply. The discount will take the cost of building your home into account.
