Yorkshire and the Humber

Sitting directly north of the East Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber has a history strongly connected to the steel, coal and farming industries. Although still a major player in the UK’s energy industry, the region is still adjusting to the move towards cleaner fuels and cheap steel imports. However, Leeds is a thriving finance and business hub, while Sheffield has enjoyed a strong resurgence in recent years as a centre for the creative arts and music. Grimsby is the centre of the UK’s fishing industry, with agriculture and food processing also providing a major source of income for the region.

Yorkshire and the Humber counties

South Yorkshire

Formed of the districts of Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster, South Yorkshire is the southernmost area within Yorkshire and the Humber. The Pennines dominate the county’s landscape, with part of the Peak District National Park lying within South Yorkshire.

West Yorkshire

West Yorkshire constitutes five metropolitan boroughs: City of Bradford, City of Leeds, Calderdale, Kirklees and City of Wakefield. Bradford, Halifax and Huddersfield were strongly connected to England’s wool industry, with much of their history and architecture dictated by it, while Leeds and the south of the county are more connected to heavy engineering industries.

East Riding of Yorkshire

The East Riding’s name comes from the traditional titles for three of Yorkshire’s smaller regions: the East, West and South Ridings. The East Riding retains the name and is bounded to the south by the Humber Estuary and to the east by the North Sea.

North Yorkshire

England’s largest non-metropolitan county, North Yorkshire is famous for the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks. Middlesbrough and York are its two largest urban settlements, while other key towns include Harrogate and Scarborough.

Great area close to city centre and headingley centre, on the main road but surprisingly quiet in the complex

Please review your development:

Lovely property, modern design, well kept and friendly building management.

Appliances come built in which is super convenient for moving and made it so much easier to settle in. The external property is well kept and the grounds are always cleaned.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The price increases each year were a shock, the rent prices increased a lot

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Really fast and friendly responses to any issues that I’ve had

I wouldn’t say it is the best area around but the development itself is clean and presentable. There is a lot of space for parking and there isn’t a lot of noise

Please review your development:

Great development, nice neighbours and Wiseliving have always been helpful. The house itself is sturdy and I’ve not really had any issues with it bar minor things. It is nice living in a newly developed estate when without buying i thought would be impossible

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

About the area, i moved from the south up north and didnt know much about where i was moving to

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Pretty well, there have been a couple of instances of no responses but always ended up with a response in the end.

Parking expensive

Review Date Jul 2024

In city centre
Noise minimal
Reception staff friendly
Parking expensive at the headline, which is not good

Please review your development:

Expensive parking is the only negative but it is large enough to not continue living here

Facilities and management nice

Negative is also removing all doormats, especially without notice. Do not think this is a fire hazard at all and is a very harsh rule

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Parking has a wait list and also increase in price every year, major deterrent to living in the headline

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Yes
Although not many problems raised due to new build
