NCH transforming green spaces for communities

NCH transforming green spaces for communities

Work is continuing to take shape on a Nottingham City Homes (NCH) project to regenerate green spaces on the city’s estates.

The green space scheme is being delivered thanks to funding from Veolia Environmental Trust under the Landfill Communities Fund, which looks to fund community projects within an eligible geographical area of a landfill or waste recycling site.

Works aim to improve communal green spaces and make them more suitable for use by local residents. The projects will focus on better access, landscaping, native planting, new fencing and communal seating areas.

Gill Moy, Director of Housing and Customer Services at Nottingham City Homes, said: “Nottingham’s neighbourhoods are currently being transformed, and thanks to the Landfill Communities Fund we’re able to make sure it’s not just homes being improved, but the areas surrounding them too. Plans are drawn up for a range of improvements to the green space on Britten Gardens, and we’re keen to hear from local residents on the proposals.”

NCH will be holding a consultation event, giving tenants the opportunity to find out more on the plans for the green space project and give feedback on the current proposals. Plans will be available to view and NCH staff on hand to answer any questions.

The Britten Gardens project, which is being designed and delivered by local charity, Groundwork Greater Nottingham, will include:

  •  New paving and footpaths

  •  Seating

  •  Play features designed to mimic the natural landscape

  •  Knee rails

  •  Access barriers, and

  •  Planting of new shrubs and flowering plants.

 

Work will start on Monday 19th September and is expected to complete by the start of November.

 

ENDS.
