All about North Hamilton

Located North East of Leicester near open countryside, this 1,650-house development on former agricultural land was developed by the Humberstone Trust. It provides river meadows, extensive wetlands, greenways, equipped play areas, general amenity areas and structure planting.

North Hamilton also boasts one of the largest Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) in the UK. This is used for research and training by many parties, including Abertay University’s Urban Water and Technology Centre.

Due to the scale and complexity of the public open spaces and features, Leicester City Council encouraged the lead Developer to appoint a long-term professional body to manage them. Due to our experience, and our Greenspace Agreement, they recommended we should be considered.

Our Customer Liaison Officer has played a major role in developing community engagement, not only within the 1,650 homes but also the wider community. This continues today and includes the local school and nursery. We also work closely with the Hamilton Residents’ Association.

In 2022, this development was awarded a Green Flag Award by Keep Britain Tidy, an international mark of quality for parks and green spaces. If you would like more information about this award you can read our news story here.

How we made this possible

Greenbelt began adopting public open spaces in 2006 with all areas adopted by 2015. Greenbelt ensured regular updated information packs were issued to all sales centres making sure the home buyers knew the details of our involvement from the earliest possible stage.
