Innovative solutions to the design, management and maintenance of urban greenspace 

Mortenshupvej, Hørsholm 
Example of a renovation scheme where a high level of attention has been paid to recycling waste and stimulating the involvement of the inhabitants in this, as part of the regeneration of the greenspaces.

This housing area consists of low rise, high density, 2 and 3 storey housing, made out of red brick. It was built in the 1930s as public housing and has been renovated more recently in full consultation with the residents. Tenants tend to be older people and younger people without children.

It is very popular with residents.

All the usual waste products (newspapers, bottles, cardboard, etc.) are sorted on site into containers. There are also bays for sorting other products at source, including metal, furniture and electrical goods.

Small front gardens have been added to the terraces which have improved their appearance and made a more "private" entrance.

Car parking has been dealt with in clusters and the land form has allowed an interesting local landscape to develop. The caretakers look after the site and call in help form the housing company when needed.
