What we can fund from the Estate Development Budget

The EDB could provide money if your association or group make a bid that will improve:

  • council housing owned buildings or community facilities
  • council housing owned land or a local environment
  • the local community and quality of life of tenants

Criteria for projects

Your project must:

  • involve as many of your neighbours as possible and be supported by them
  • be able to be completed in the same financial year (April 2019 to March 2020)
  • not cost more than £10,000
  • not be something that could be done as a repair or as part of a larger maintenance programme

If your project is for fencing, we’ll only fund communal fencing. We can’t fund fencing for individual properties.
