New homes at Kirkness Court

Last week was the opening of the brand new social housing complex on Corporation Street, named Kirkness Court in memory of Lance Corporal David Kirkness, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2009.

I went along to meet new residents Joe and Phyllis, who are delighted to be moving in. It’s a fantastic new complex, the result of £2.2million investment in our area. Its not hard to see why there was such high demand for these homes.

There’s a real need for new housing across Morley, especially social and affordable housing and developments like Kirkness Court are a great addition to our town. However, I am worried that developers are telling me new conditions being imposed by the government will make it harder to provide badly-needed homes in our area.
