environmental improvements and allows them to have an influence on
a mainstream budget.

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

and Housing Revenue Account (HRA) improvements, which can be
influenced by the local community.

can only be used on land which is Council owned and surrounding
