It was a joint initiative of Leeds City Council, the Yorkshire Metropolitan Housing Association and the Yorkshire Bank. 57 new homes were created from the conversion of old cottage-style flats and new build. There were 6 3 bedroomed houses, 4 2 bedroomed houses, 12 one-bedroomed flats for the elderly and 33 sheltered flats with a warden on site, also for the elderly.
