Henry Boot Construction recently met up with Councillors from Leeds City Council to attend the topping out ceremony at our Wharfedale View Extra Care Scheme in Yeadon, Leeds.  The scheme is part of the authority’s council house growth programme which will see around 1,000 new homes built over the next three years. 

Construction on the council’s flagship extra care scheme is taking shape with the steel frame nearing completion and the central lift shaft installed.

Residents will benefit from a communal lounge, an activity room, a salon and bathing suite in a spa setting, an en-suite guest room for visitors and a restaurant and be able to enjoy landscaped gardens with convenient, dedicated parking.

The 45 apartments will allow residents to live in their own homes with their own front door.  Residents will be able to retain their independence with a range of flexible support and care services tailored to their needs and preferences over time.

“As the first council owned and managed extra care scheme in Leeds, it’s hugely exciting to see the building coming together.”

Councillor Lisa Mulherin, Leeds City Council

“These homes need to be warm, spacious and meet a variety of needs so Wharfedale View will provide quality accommodation for our older generation.”

Councillor Debra Coupar, Leeds City Council

“The site has been a real hive of activity as construction progresses.  We’re looking forward to welcoming people to their news homes that will showcase the best of design.”

Councillor Richard Lewis, Leeds City Council

"This is a significant project for Leeds City Council and the local community.  Through collaboration with the design team we are pleased to be progressing Wharfedale View to the very highest quality standard.”

Tony Shaw, Operations Director, Henry Boot Construction
