Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust developed Derwenthorpe with a vision to build a strong, green community.
JRHT play many roles:
- Residual land owners – they own all the open space, and play areas. Until the roads are adopted by the Council, JRHT own them, too.
- As a housing association, they’re landlords to many residents.
- Many households are in shared ownership arrangements with JRHT.
- They manage the community facilities at the Energy Centre.
