Environmental Improvement Programme
Do you have a good idea for making the area where you live look better or more secure?

Every year CBH allocates £10,000 for customers to spend on environmental improvements.
Applications are welcome for any project which would improve the local environment. Past schemes have included security gates, fencing, lighting and landscaping.

Benefits of being involved:

  • Enable you to identify local environmental issues
  • Make physical changes to the environment of your neighbourhood
  • Encourage support from your local community
  • Help to prioritise accepted bids

To submit a bid
To be eligible for funding all bids must;

  • Benefit the community, not an individual
  • have the support of tenants and leaseholders

You need to complete an application form. They are available from your area office, or from the Community Involvement Team .

The closing date for receiving bids is 31st May. After this date all submitted bids are visited and an estimated cost is worked out.

A panel made up of tenant representatives (elected by tenants & leaseholders at the CBH Neighbourhood Meetings) known as the EIP working Group, then look at all the bids from each area and prioritise them for completion.
