I am delighted to be able to welcome sc4L as our partner in Little London, Beeston Hill and Holbeck.
The partnership will last for twenty years during which time sc4L will be responsible for maintaining your homes and estates. In the first three and a half years they will refurbish your homes and build new council homes in your community. Surveyors will be visiting some homes shortly and sc4L are arranging opportunities for you to meet them in the next few weeks.
The Council will not be a ‘back-seat’ partner. It is our ambition to make Leeds the best city to live in. We will be working actively with sc4L throughout the scheme to help us to achieve this aim.
The views of local residents are very important to us. We will make sure that you continue to have every opportunity to be consulted, ask questions and to influence how this scheme is delivered. I know that you will agree that it has taken longer to get to this point than any of us wanted. The Council has worked very hard to make sure that this scheme would go ahead, and was not shelved. Without our commitment we could not have reached where we are today. May I thank you once again for your patience and now look forward to substantial progress where it matters most – on site!
