“I was allocated a room in Clarence Dock Village. I was anxious at first but now I love it here. It’s really nice being out of the hustle and bustle of the city yet you’re only a 10-minute walk away from the centre of town. Living at this side of Leeds means I’ve had more of a chance to explore the city too. I like being able to walk by the river and the Dock area and see a different side to Leeds.”

Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding has not been used in the construction of Clarence Dock Village. 

Clarence Dock Village also has many features that enable the safe evacuation of individuals, including a fire detection and alarm system that exceeds legislative requirements. The automatic L (Life) type alarm system ensures that all areas of your residence are covered by detection, including bedrooms, kitchens, plant rooms, and communal areas.  Other fire safety systems installed for your protection include:

  • Fire containment between rooms, flats and areas within buildings. Walls, ceilings and door sets are designed to resist and prevent the spread of fire long enough for you to safely escape the building.
  • Fire blankets in kitchens throughout the building(s).

In addition, we operate a system where local staff and fire wardens are trained to undertake proactive and reactive fire safety duties, which include building inspections and routine fire safety checks
