Let's Celebrate Earth Day 2020

Greenbelt is getting back to work – caring, safely and responsibly, for your open space environment.

And even in these challenging times there are reasons to be cheerful.

Getting Back To Work

Greenbelt led the way in halting open space maintenance and inspections on housing developments to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 . . . but, rest assured, we have been working non-stop in the background preparing for our return.

Update For Residents

Greenbelt continues to focus on the safety of homeowners and employees and is fully supporting the UK-wide effort to suppress the spread of COVID-19.

This means it’s not possible right now to perform the routine maintenance that would normally be underway on developments at the beginning of Spring.

An Important Message

Greenbelt is prioritising the safety of homeowners and our employees in these extraordinary and challenging times by suspending all open space maintenance.

Our number one goal is to help halt the spread of COVID-19 for us and the world around us.

Please be assured none of our residents will be charged for the period when maintenance is halted, with full and clear details made available on your next annual bill.

Coronavirus: An Update From Greenbelt

Having introduced our own programme of strict hygiene controls, Greenbelt is continuing with the uninterrupted operation of our services based on the latest Government advice.

Storm Dennis brings flood warnings

Weather experts are warning Storm Dennis could inflict more damage this weekend than Storm Ciara, with a “perfect storm” caused by a combination of heavy rain, strong winds and melting snow.

Storm Ciara Warning

We’d like to alert our customers that the Met Office has issued severe weather warnings as Storm Ciara brings heavy rain and widespread gales to the UK.

The low-pressure system, which developed in the North Atlantic and has tracked eastwards to the UK, brings 60mph gusts inland and 80mph gusts in higher and coastal regions.

Weather Warning

We’d like to alert our customers that the Met Office has issued weather warnings, with very strong winds forecast to hit parts of the UK tonight around 9pm and continue into tomorrow morning.

Greenbelt Strengthens Team

Having recently reached a 60,000-plus household customers milestone, Greenbelt continues to grow its operations and boost the brand right across the UK.

As part of our mission to continuously improve our high-quality land maintenance and management, we’re strengthening our dedicated Services Team, incorporating in-house appointments in Operations and Customer Care, as well as external recruiting for the post of Area Operations Manager North East England and Regional Operations Manager in Scotland.

SOS: Save Our Swings!

Vandalism has the potential to destroy entire communities. This terrible power exists because acts of destruction, no matter how minor, can affect us deeply in many different ways.

SUDS v Storms

In the wake of Storm Brendan there’s an increased risk of flooding across many parts of the UK . . . but this is just part of a much bigger threat.

The number of households in the UK at risk of flooding could more than double by 2050 – affecting more than 1.9 million homes – due to the effects of climate change.

Protect Your Garden

It might seem too early yet to be thinking about ‘serious gardening’ but there’s plenty to do in the month of January.

Top of the topical to-do lists should be a top priority mission: protection. And it’s not just garden plants that need your help.
