Coast & Country Housing is the largest registered housing provider in Redcar and Cleveland. They believe that working together with local people to find local solutions is a key factor in building and sustaining communities.
Just one of the ways that they have recently demonstrated this was through the creation of the new ‘Hummersea Hills Play Park’ in Loftus, North Yorkshire. This fantastic facility will really improve the lives of the children and their families living in this new development of 130 new homes. As Coast & Country Housing quite rightly say, they ‘don’t just build houses, they create neighbourhoods.’ It will give the new development a real community feel.

Hummersea Hills Play Park was a joint project by Coast & Country Housing, Brambledown Landscape Services and Playdale Playgrounds. You can find out more about this collaboration and see the playground in action in this video below:
The exciting new equipment includes an inclusive Mambo Plus junior multi-play unit from our Jukebox Plus range, an inclusive Team Swing, Junior and Toddler Swings and a large selection of products from our popular Timber Adventure Trail range.

The children living on this development now have an exciting new play area that provides a range of activities, allowing them to challenge themselves and have fun. Just as importantly all the local residents have a great new safe place to socialise and create long lasting relationships with friends and neighbours.
Playgrounds, parks, and other aesthetically pleasing open spaces are important selling points for new housing developments. They are critical to the development of healthy communities because they improve physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Many local planning authorities emphasise the importance of a variety of both formal and informal outdoor spaces. These areas are referred to […]
