We offer a range of external services that can complement or support your business.
GreenSquare Estates is proud to manage and maintain the open spaces on new-build development sites across the South West.
We have carefully developed a unique model for adopting and maintaining areas of open space, drainage features, and play areas, with the capacity to deliver grounds maintenance services to schemes ranging from small rural exception sites to large scale, urban expansion schemes.
Our model aims to provide both excellent customer relations through the delivery of services to residents, but also a financially rewarding contractual agreement for developers and housebuilders, offering significant savings on the commuted sum required with traditional local authority adoption. Our model also offers assurance of service delivery, in perpetuity, to local authorities and residents.
We offer an alternative approach to the traditional management company, adopting the freehold of the public open spaces, in return for an annual, fixed in perpetuity, estate rent charge. In addition, GreenSquareAccord can assist in negotiations with local authorities to vary existing and historic Section 106 agreements, to release significant cost savings to the developer. It has been our experience that negotiations with local authorities have proved more successful due to GreenSquareAccord being a Registered Provider, and our ability to demonstrate our longevity.

Planning for Real®
Planning for Real® is a nationally recognised community planning process based on 3D modelling. The process allows residents to register their views on a range of issues, to work together to identify priorities, and in partnership with local agencies go on to develop an action plan for change.
We work with communities to help them have a real say about what happens in their neighbourhoods. We help communities design and run programmes of community engagement so that their voice can be heard on topics such as neighbourhood planning, new housing and regeneration projects and the provision of services.
We are commissioned by local authorities, housing providers and community groups to design and run programmes of community engagement. We offer a range of techniques all of which are visual, tactile, participatory and community-led.
