Resting on the very outskirts of Malton, the Hills was a small community that had generally kept to itself. The suburb supported several clinics and research hospitals and as such had a brisk medical trade in the area.
The suburb contains only one NecroTech facility: the Dury Building. It does, however, boast an impressive 6 hospitals, as well as 3 police stations, 3 factories and an Auto Shop. Dunell Hills is also home to historical site Club Meade -- one of the more famous RP bars in Malton -- when the suburb is not in zombie hands.
Hometown to the Dunell Hills Police Department, "the Hills" are also infamous as the birthplace of mega horde The Dead and site of bitter rivalry between the two that has destroyed much of the town's infrastructure and former reputation as a safezone for survivors.
Dunell Hills Building Information Center contains status reports and updates on key buildings in the suburb.

A Brief History of Dunell Hills After the Outbreak
Dunell Hills, a small quiet community that had always kept to itself, rests on the very outskirts of Malton. It was during a town meeting at Godsland Street School that the quarantine of the area was instituted and as such the local population could not organize themselves before they were practically decimated by various waves of zombies that swept through the suburb.
After the initial chaos and bloody slaughter a group calling itself the Dunell Hills Police Department, after the city's pre-outbreak police force and formed from remnants of emergency services, military, and survivor militia, established this suburb as the heart of the Dunell Military Zone, in what eventually became a six borough region which they have pledged to patrol and defend.
Since the Fall of Caiger Mall, Dunell Hills has often been a very dangerous suburb, at certain points completely devoid of life. This was initially caused when many of the zombies drawn to Caiger Mall chose to remain in the region; since then local survivors have been under almost constant siege -- including fierce battles with Extinction in 2007 and the arrival en masse of The Dead in 2008, the latter having vowed never to permit survivors to reside in Dunell Hills again.
The Dead, in fact, succeeded in making Dunell Hills a wasteland from November 2007 to September 2008. Although there were several concerted attempts by different survivor groups to retake the suburb during this time, none of these incursions met with more than transitory and limited success. At the end of this period, repair costs averaged around 50 AP, with some buildings in the high 90s. However, the latter half of September 2008 saw the DHPD, the Crimson Clan, the Malton Rangers and other survivors move back into "the Hills", establishing a stable survivor "beachhead" for the first time in over a year. The Dead returned in mid-October and the two sides engaged in a bloody battle which resulted in the Dunell Hills Police Department being pushed out of the suburb by November 2008; the area was subsequently placed into a state of ruin once again; ever since that period the suburb has continued to change hands on an almost constant basis.
The current state of Dunell Hills is in flux, and may always be -- with victories large and small for both sides, and the major local groups continuing to make Dunell Hills a constant and sometimes violent battleground.

Dunell Hills is firmly in the hands of The Dead after repelling a combined assault from the Dunell Hills Police Department, Knights Templar, and East Becktown Defenders. All resource buildings are ruined along with nearly the entire suburb. -JAZED (talk) 16:29, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
Like most suburbs, Dunnel Hills has a survivor-based barricade plan. However, it must be noted for the sake of neutrality, that The Dead has its own building code, which it seeks to enforce. Both survivor and The Dead barricade policies are listed below.
