The Land Trust acquires open space management at Upton, Northamptonshire

1st April 2016

The Land Trust is delighted to announce the acquisition of public open space around the residential development at Upton, Northamptonshire.

The scheme, formerly owned by the Homes and Communities Agency has been developed by a number of housing developers, but was planned with integrated communal open spaces and a Sustainable Urban Drainage Scheme.

These public open space assets have now transferred to the Land Trust to manage and maintain through the collection of a service charge from householders, which was detailed in the property deeds when the properties were purchased.

Iain Taylor, Director for the Land Trust said “Upton is a fantastic residential development which has been planned with valuable integrated open space. We recognise that well maintained public space around people’s homes can maintain and even enhance its value. As a charity we are committed to working with the community to not only manage the open space, the play areas and the sustainable urban drainage systems, but to involve the community as much as possible.”

The Land Trust’s long term vision is to improve the quality of people’s lives by creating, improving and maintaining sustainable, high quality green spaces that deliver environmental, social and economic benefits.
