Neighbourhood Environment Programme (NEP)

NEIGHBOURHOOD ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMME (NEP)

The Neighbourhood Environment Programme (NEP) encourages South Central residents to get involved in making decisions for environmental improvements and allows them to have an influence on a mainstream budget.

Through NEP the community is provided with greater local accountability over environmental spend.

The NEP pulls together the views of local people, which presents the partnership with a strategic overview of the priorities across the area.

NEP has two principal strands, namely Roads Capital Improvements and Housing Revenue Account (HRA) improvements both of which can be influenced by the local community.

ROADS CAPITAL NEP Roads Capital projects are submitted for consideration and decided on a annual basis by a nominated Selection Committee.

HOUSING REVENUE ACCOUNT: The HRA element of the NEP programme can only be used on land which is Council owned and surrounding mixed tenure properties.
