Final phase of works begin to use former hospital site for hundreds of homes

Doncaster-headquartered housebuilder, Keepmoat, has invested more than £66.6m into a regeneration scheme to revitalise East Leeds, delivering hundreds more homes.

The Timeless development in Seacroft has seen the area undergo significant regeneration and investment.

Keepmoat is delivering the scheme, which forms part of a long-established partnership with Homes England to deliver new homes to replace about five acres of brownfield land that once housed Seacroft Hospital.

The 758-home development has been built over four phases, with the first three phases delivered in partnership with Strata.

Work on the final phase of the transformation has now begun and will create the final 72  new mixed tenure homes to the project.

The Timeless development is a flagship scheme for the wider regeneration project, which is being led by Keepmoat and Homes England.

Chris Clingo, regional managing director at Keepmoat, Yorkshire West, said: “We’re thrilled to be continuing delivery under the Leeds City Council partnership to deliver quality, sustainable homes for the latest phase of the Timeless Development.

“The development forms part of a wider regeneration project in East Leeds which is aiming to provide significant opportunity for the city’s growth.

“It has been a privilege to watch the new communities begin to flourish and it’s extremely rewarding to hear positive feedback from residents and breathe new life into the Seacroft area.”

Andrew Macfarlane, project manager for Homes England, the Government’s Housing and Regeneration Agency added: “We are pleased to see the start of the final phase of the Seacroft Hospital development, unlocking land for a further 72 new homes in Leeds.

“This final phase of development reflects the strong partnership work between Homes England and Keepmoat bringing new housing to an area where it is needed most.”

Construction at The Timeless Development is due to complete by summer 2026.
