St. Modwen Homes are delighted to announce the delivery of a brand new area of open space, which residents of Hilton will be able to enjoy for years to come.

Located just behind Hilton Valley’s development, the space benefits from an enhanced landscape, including a collection of woodland walks. Residents of all ages can come and explore the natural delights of the woodland, in turn learning about the area in which they live.

Improvements to natural habitats, including the addition of a new pond and wildflowers, will also greatly benefit local wildlife, providing new homes for a variety of insects, reptiles, and ground-nesting birds.

Martin Install, Managing Director of the North for St. Modwen Homes, said:

“Now, more than ever, we know that keeping well and looking after mental health is so important. Spending time in fresh air is one of the easiest ways to ensure we feel rejuvenated and energised.

“Our teams have worked hard to create a space that Hilton residents can be proud of and we hope that opening the gates now will give more opportunities for the community to immerse themselves in the great outdoors.”

Before the latest national lockdown was announced, an official launch event had been planned to introduce the space to the children at the neighbouring Mease Spenser Academy.  Sam Beckett, from the Hilton Conservation Group, was set to guide the children in an outdoor activity session.

Discussing what makes this new open space special, Sam said:

“Diversity of local wildlife is something we can often take for granted. Features of the new space in Hilton are quite remarkable, in that they encourage natural regeneration and make space for new species to thrive. I look forward to coming back to run activities with local children, as soon as it is possible to do so.”

Talking about her hopes for the future of the space, Julia Hart, Principal of The Mease Spenser Academy, said: “As we’re in such close proximity to the Hilton Valley development, we’ve been watching and waiting for the moment the open space was completed.

“Our children will benefit greatly from exposure to such an interesting landscape, which offers so many opportunities for them to learn about the environment and local wildlife. Of course, they also can’t wait to play in the large open space which we simply didn’t have before! We’re very grateful to St.Modwen for developing such a valuable community asset.”

Rosie Coulton, a resident of Hilton Valley recently visited the space. She said, “We have just been to the water pond and new walkway through the woods and it is fantastic! What an amazing feature to have right on our doorstep. It’s such a shame we couldn’t have a celebration to thank the teams involved in person, hopefully, it’ll be something we can do when things return to normal.”
