Further to Minute No. 108, 16th November 2016, the Director of Resources and Housing submitted a report providing an update on the investment approved in July and November 2016 for the LNA (Leeds Neighbourhood Approach) in Holbeck and the investment in group repair, specifically in the Recreations. The report also provided details of other activities which have complemented the investment as part of the Council’s and partners’ activity in this area to address issues of deprivation.


The progress which had been made as a result of this initiative was welcomed, and the importance of continuing the positive work in that part of the city to complement ongoing major developments, was highlighted.


Responding to a Member’s enquiry, it was noted that the submitted report contained details of how the actions taken had made tangible differences for those living and working in the area. Also, further to this, it was acknowledged that the submitted report focussed upon the housing led investment undertaken in the Holbeck area, however, with regard to the ongoing work in priority neighbourhoods it was intended that further reports would be submitted to the Board regarding the impact of that work, which would include reference to the latest Indices of Multiple Deprivation statistics.


RESOLVED – That the contents of the submitted report, be noted.
