We’re delighted to welcome yet more new residents into the Greenbelt family this month – and what a month it’s been! Following new billing in March, an amazing 917 new households joined us – which is more than we had taken on in January and February combined!
With more than 1,700 new Greenbelt households having joined us in 2016 so far already, we can bring our quality sustainable open space management services to more people than ever – for the first time ever, we now care for more than 47,000 unique households on hundreds of great developments from all over the UK. To celebrate another Greenbelt milestone, let’s take a look at some of the exciting sites that we’ve taken under our wing in March.
Our all-new Cranmer Gardens, Kings Gate site may be small, but it packs in a number of Greenbelt’s signature site features: mature specimen trees, knee-rail fencing and well-landscaped hedgerows give the development a pleasing sense of structure, while an open area of species-rich meadow grass gives residents an attractive backdrop for viewing all kinds of local wildlife.
Another interesting development that we’ve taken on in March is our new Marina Park site – with nearly 200 of our newest households this month, it boasts beautiful open spaces that feature mature tree groupings, wildflower areas and shrub planting to offer residents a wide variety of pleasing foliage.
For families with young children, Marina Park also features two designated play areas, which include state of the art play equipment and open spaces for children to run around and let off some steam.
We also welcomed more than 160 new households into the Greenbelt family on our new Middlestone Moor development, featuring areas of standard trees, a play area and a managed retaining wall alongside the development’s existing farmland track.
Our other all-new sites this month include Woodside Chase in North Yorkshire - which features four designated areas for play and a beautiful woodland compartment with a footpath allowing a convenient route through for elderly residents or those with prams – and Scholar’s Rise - also in North Yorkshire - which is our biggest single all-new site this month, comprising 273 households.
Finally, we also welcomed a number of new residents onto our existing sites after new billing saw additional sections of these developments go live: more than 120 new households joined us on our existing Berryfields site, while another 28 new households can enjoy quality Greenbelt management on our Bellsdyke development.
Regular readers while recognise Bellsdyke as one of our largest sites, having just recently become one of the first Greenbelt developments with more than 1,000 residents. Rather than rest on our laurels, it’s encouraging to see that we can keep expanding the development even beyond this milestone to bring our quality sustainable open space management to as many residents as possible.
