Project description
Banks Property gained planning permission to build around 180 much needed homes on this site to the south of the River Aire. The homes were constructed by Barratt Homes.

Economic benefits
• Additional council tax revenue of £443,000 to Leeds City Council
• A new homes bonus (paid by central Government) spread over six years, of around £2.7m has been paid to Leeds City Council to spend on improvements and essential services within the area
• The development is providing over 100 construction jobs for local contractors and suppliers
• Families moving into the area will increase trade for local shops and business

Social benefits
• New, high quality family housing helps retain families within the Methley area, enabling them to support local services
• The provision of affordable homes will help young families get on the property ladder, in the area where they grew up
• Investment in the area will attract new families, bring increased spending in the local economy and strengthen the existing community
• The scheme will also bring flood alleviation measures into being that will protect the whole village – although the site itself does not flood

Environmental benefits
• The homes on the site are built to modern standards of energy efficiency by Barratt Homes
• The development includes wildlife corridors
• New pathways are also being created that will increase walking and cycling in the area
• The project has also involved the removal of invasive plants such as Japanese knot weed.
