Engaging with the community in the north east

Green space management specialist, Glendale, has been providing grounds maintenance services on behalf of North Star Housing Group since April 2016.

A team of multi-skilled grounds maintenance operatives are delivering a regular schedule of programmed work to green spaces and housing estates across the Tees Valley, North Yorkshire and County Durham on behalf of the northeast based housing association.

The programme of works includes a regular, scheduled grass cutting service, plus hedge trimming, shrub bed maintenance, weed control and hard standing maintenance.

Dave Fontana, regional support manager at Glendale, comments: “A key part of our service delivery is community engagement.  In order to ensure that residents get to know our operatives who are working in the area, who to contact if they have any questions and what services we are providing, we have created an online hub called Glendale Local.

“My favourite part of the hub is the postcode search which allows residents to find out exactly what services are happening in their street and when they can expect these to be delivered.

“The overall aim of the grounds maintenance service is to ensure all green spaces are maintained to an excellent standard for residents to enjoy.  Access to high-quality green space available right on the doorstep makes such a big difference to the sense of wellbeing within the local community. Glendale is passionate regarding service delivery and partnership working to ensure local residents are completely confident and satisfied with the service.”

Glendale will continue to provide grounds maintenance services on behalf of North Star Housing Group for the next four years.
