Tell us how we can improve the area you live in
Every year we have a budget to carry out environmental improvements around the district.
The budget is spent on large projects such as landscaping communal gardens, and smaller projects such as extra flower beds or trees, additional seating areas or more lighting.
You can make a suggestion to improve your area, either:
Complete the online form to make suggestion to improve your area.
- Talk to your local tenants and residents association (TRA) and then send us an online form, or
- Talk to your Area Housing Officer (or your Scheme Manager, if you live in a sheltered scheme) and ask them to submit a bid
Check with neighbours first to see if they support your bid. Any suggestions for large projects may also need to be looked at by our Engineers or Parks and Gardens team, to make sure it is possible to do what you have asked for.
Bids need to be with us by the end of February. You can only send one idea per form. If you require hanging baskets for a block of flats and a bench for your communal garden, you should submit two separate forms. We will let you know we have received your bid within 2 weeks.
Each March, we talk to TOLD to agree which projects are to be funded. We will let you know during April if your bid has been successful.
If successful, your project will be carried out within 12 months. Some take longer than others to do because they might need planning consent, and planting can only be done at the right time of year.
