Kirklees Housing Sites

We’re helping to get land ready for more than 600 new homes in Ashbrow, near Huddersfield, and Soothill, in Batley, with Leeds City Region Growth Deal investment.

Our £1 million of funding, invested in partnership with the LEP, will fund off-site highway works at both locations. Once house building works are complete, 610 new homes will be available, 54 of which will be affordable.

In addition, our funding will support also support the creation of 540 construction jobs.

We have an ambition to increase housing delivery across Leeds City Region up to 10,000 homes per year by 2021.
