Points Cross, Hunslet Road, Leeds

Points Cross is the first Project to be approved on the Brownfield Housing Fund Programme, the site is in the Hunslet/South Bank Regeneration Area.

Project overview

Point Cross development will provide photovoltaic panels which will generate enough energy to supply the first phase of the development with renewable energy in its entirety. The PVs will initially generate an oversupply of renewable energy, which will be sold back to the National Grid until future phases of development are delivered. There is the potential for wider catalysed phases to connect into a wider DHN.

The proposed building design will accommodate carbon savings directly through the design and construction process.

The scheme will have a SUDs system to reduce surface water run-off and will comprise low water use characteristics to less than 110 litres per person per day (circa 50% less than a typical consumption rate).

This will include EV charging plugs and drop off points for car sharing/dedicated spaces for a car club and will also be fully integrated with a new bus stop and dedicated bus lane to promote sustainable travel.

The first phase of the scheme will deliver 311 apartments which are to be 100% affordable.
