Issue details

Future of six high rise and resident rehousing - Bailey and Brooklands Towers, Ramshead Heights, Leafield Towers, Raynville Court and Grange

As significant investment work is needed to bring six high rise housing blocks up to an appropriate standard, including intrusive and costly strengthening works, an options appraisal has been undertaken and a decision is needed on the future of the blocks.

These are Brooklands Towers, Bailey Towers and Ramshead Heights in Seacroft, Leafield Towers in Moortown, and Raynville Court and Raynville Grange in Armley, with a total of 360 homes.

The recommended approach includes for all residents to be rehoused, with appropriate support for those who need it.  This would be needed whether blocks are being refurbished or are to be demolished to clear the sites to enable later redevelopment.
