Holbeck Urban Village
The designated area, part of Holbeck, is located amongst ex-locomotive engineering and manufacturing buildings, some dating back to the 18th century on the south side of the River Aire. Among the listed buildings on the site are Marshall's Mill, Temple Works, Tower Works and the Round Foundry. The 'urban village' concept is being used alongside government investment to encourage building developers to create a mix of residential, business, and leisure facilities.
Some local friction has been caused by the HUV being cited as 'expensive' and as a focus for government investment whilst ignoring adjacent back to back housed areas of Holbeck and Beeston Hill.
