50,000 & Still Growing: Greenbelt Celebrates Milestone With Residents

Greenbelt cares for hundreds of residential developments and public open spaces all over the UK.

We’re confident about the quality of the open space management we offer to our residents, and that’s why we take on new developments as well as adding phased new areas to our existing ones all year round: so that we can bring our quality sustainable land management to as many people as possible.

With this in mind, we’re very proud to announce that – for the first time ever – Greenbelt now caters to more than 50,000 households UK-wide!

While over the years Greenbelt has taken on management of many unique and beautiful developments all across the country, it was Ivanhoe Fields in Ashby-de-la-Zouch that finally took us over the historic 50,000-household milestone.

Our Community Liaison Officer, Nick Upton, hosted an informal get-together for residents of the site to celebrate the achievement – as well as enjoy a buffet and discuss Greenbelt’s contribution to a charity of their choosing.

“The meeting was held at the Royal Hotel Ashby,” said Nick.

“After a presentation about Greenbelt services, we discussed the charity donation Greenbelt would give– it was a unanimous decision that the £500 donation from Greenbelt should go to the Alzheimer’s Society.

“I’m pleased to see such engagement in the community from these residents, who told me they were pleased and reassured by the positive and productive meeting.

“While I’m honoured to be a part of Greenbelt’s historic milestone, we won’t be resting on our laurels. Much like the open spaces we manage across the UK, Greenbelt will keep on growing.”

While it fell to Ivanhoe Fields to be the development that pushed us across the 50,000 threshold, we’ve also taken on management of many other attractive developments and new phases across the UK in recent months – such as Lakeside at Scraptoft, Bishops Court in Exeter and Cransley Green in Northamptonshire.

In celebration of such a milestone at Greenbelt, we hope you enjoy this picture gallery of these beautiful developments:
