Neighbourhood Environment Fund

Forth Neighbourhood Partnership has funding to carry out environmental improvement projects that have been identified and agreed with local Community Councils.

 Examples of projects already approved in Forth include:

  • Creating a Community Garden at Inchgarvie Court.
  • Planting new trees at Boswell Crescent
  • Upgrading fencing and environmental improvements at West Pilton Grove
  • Renewing speed cushions and bollards at Boswall Parkway
  • Resurfacing footpaths at East Trinity Road.

Projects must be on land or assets held by Services for Communities (SfC).

This includes:

  • Grassed areas and other open spaces, roads, footpaths and garage areas.
  • Common areas such as drying greens, bin store areas, stair entrances.
  • Footpaths and roads.

The aim of the project should be to improve the immediate environment for local residents but projects should also show that they can extend the lifespan or increase the value of the land or asset that has been improved.
