Housing in Leeds

MUNICIPAL Housing commenced in Leeds in 1919 and progressed steadily until 1933. 10,084 dwellings were erected and although the progress compared with some cities was, perhaps, a little slow, a good building standard was maintained. 1934 brought about a sudden change and a programme was approved for the demolition of 30,000 of the oldest type of back-to-back houses and the rehousing of the families displaced, representing approximately 120,000 people.
