Green Teams

Astley Village is a large neighbourhood of nearly 600 properties in Chorley, Lancashire. 

The neighbourhood contains a large amount of communal green space, trees, footpaths, ponds and play spaces.

Housing managers worked with our in-house grounds maintenance provider, Places for People Landscapes, to agree a new enhanced grounds maintenance specification for the estate.

As part of the work, a Green Team of three to five customers was formed to represent the views of customers, and to oversee the maintenance of the neighbourhood green space. 

As well as regular meetings with housing managers and the contractor overseeing maintenance activities, the Green Team is responsible for overseeing the annual landscape improvement budget.

They're able to influence where improvements are made across the estate, ensuring feedback from their fellow customers makes a real difference to the neighbourhood they live in.

The approach has been very successful and the model is being rolled out to other neighbourhoods across the country.
