Gainsborough is a harmonious place to live and be proud of. As you settle in to your new home, please see some helpful tips to be a Good Neighbour at Gainsborough.


Vehicles of any kind are not permitted in your front yard, on footpaths, verges or vacant land. Your driveway can be used to park cars or light utilities but not for long term storage of boats, caravans or containers.

Oversized vehicles

To keep thoroughfares clear, trucks or similar vehicles cannot be parked on the roadway for extended periods of time.


We all want Gainsborough Greens looking its best. Front gardens should be kept tidy with grass (including verge) mowed regularly, gardens weeded and plants thriving for an evergreen look and feel.


Rubbish bins are to be kept behind fences or screened from both public view and your neighbour’s view at all times; except for the day of rubbish collection.


Clothes drying facilities must be located away from or screened from public view.


We’re a community of friends and neighbours. In the interest of positive neighbour relations, please consider those around you and keep noise to a respectable level at all times.

Window fittings

Homes should be fitted with curtains, blinds or shutters. Please ensure visually prominent security screens (e.g. diamond grills); or vertical blinds are not installed on doors or windows facing any street frontage.

Thank you for observing the Good Neighbour Guidelines at Gainsborough Greens.
