Our 20 years of local knowledge has meant that we are in the best possible position to give investors advice on housing and information in Harehills and surrounding areas. As estate and letting agents, we have a level of experience that crosses all areas of the property industry and our specialist knowledge covers a variety of areas in the Leeds market. These include:
- East End Park
- Cross Green
- Halton Moor
Hogan’s Estate and Letting Agents are situated in the centre of the largest localised regeneration to be allocated to Leeds for many years. The above areas of East and South East Leeds are part of the EASEL regeneration project which is aiming to revitalise neighbourhoods through the creation of 5,000 new homes and over 2,000 jobs.
The regeneration plan will also include improving local schools, offering opportunities for training and employment, raising household incomes and improving local sports and leisure facilities.
Particular elements that will add value to the area and support the regeneration scheme are:
- Morrisons opening – the store is opened on 1st November 2010 and will bring jobs to the local area and is piloting a scheme that works in conjunction with the Create Foundation to get 20 homeless people back into employment.
- Netto turning into Asda – Asda expect that all Netto stores will be trading under the name of Asda by the middle of the summer 2011 and will be called Asda Supermarkets. The stores will provide consumers with a compact version of the larger superstores and will include the George clothing range.
- Harehills and Seacroft- are both part of Leeds Ahead Catalyst Centre projects which seek to encourage enterprise and new business in the areas.
- St James Hospital – is a teaching hospital centrally located to the Harehills area. The hospital is looking to expand its departments and subsequently are continually recruiting for staff, many of which live in the area.
- The Compton Centre – situated on Compton Road a few minutes walk from our office, is a joint service centre that provides the local community with free advice, support and personal development. It is also in partnership with the NHS, The Library and the Jobshop.
- Selective licensing scheme – implemented by the council to regenerate areas and improve the privately rented sector of the market with particular focus on East End Park and Cross Green.
- Group repair in Cross Green and East End Park – is similar to those undertaken in other parts of Leeds and will allow, where possible, for redevelopment of properties, training and apprenticeship opportunities for local people.
- New Builds in Gipton – will see the creation of 63 new council homes, which is the single biggest number of new council homes in decades. The scheme is part of the EASEL project and should trigger a greater uplift in local house prices and demand.
- Empty social housing blocks are to be pulled down which will make space for new developments including 400 new council homes.
