Leeds Private Rental Scheme Picks Up Best New Housing Award pickard properties

Spinning Acres, a unique £40m private rental development in the Far Headingley area of Leeds, has been awarded the accolade of ‘Best New High-Volume Housing Development’ at the recent Local Authority Building Control (LABC) awards.

LABC represents all local authority building control teams in England and Wales and its annual awards attract a wide range of entries.

For Pickard Properties it was a cause for great celebration for their latest scheme, which is by far the most ambitious private rented development the family firm has undertaken, although the Pickard name has been a well-respected and long-established name in the rental market for over 50 years.

The Spinning Acres development, is located on a six-acre site in the Far Headingley Conservation Area, which is widely regarded as one of the most exclusive residential sites in Leeds.

The scheme beat off stiff competition in its category from two other developments in the West Yorkshire region.

“Very popular with families”

Commenting on their success, director, Miles Pickard, said: “This accolade reflects the standard of properties available for rental on this site. The development has met with wide acclaim from all those who have visited it. We have invested a great deal of time and thought into the standard of fixtures and fittings as well as the overall setting of our houses, which make the development so unique.

“Our approach has paid off because for anyone following their career, particularly with a family to consider, this high-end development offers new build properties for rental so there is no maintenance or mortgage to worry about.

“The larger properties are very popular with families, particularly those who find themselves in this part of the world while pursuing a career path. In fact, our first tenants who have already moved in have come from as far afield as Southampton, Dubai and Belgium to live at Spinning Acres while they work in and around the Leeds area. All say how much they appreciate the superb family accommodation on offer.

“We are now looking ahead confidently to completing the further phases of the scheme in the knowledge that we are providing some of the highest quality long term rental properties available in the Leeds area.”
