Environmental renewal schemes

The council has allocated approximately £3.5 million to carry our environmental renewal schemes over the last 14 years. A further £321,000 has now been allocated for 2019/20 to 2021/22. Since starting the programme in 2005, a number of schemes have been completed across the borough, including:

  • Central Buckskin

During 2019/20 to 2021/22, works are scheduled to be undertaken in Popley Islands West, Popley East; Western Way, South Ham; Cambrian Way, Buckskin; Norn Hill North, Norden; and Paddock Road, South Ham.

Types of schemes that can be considered are:

  • Enhancing neglected areas by replacing fencing, benches, bins and tidying up overgrown plant beds.
  • Improving the layout of footpaths and removing inappropriate steps.
  • Removing isolated grass and planted areas.
  • Reducing nuisance issues such as ball games.
  • Upgrading of open space and youth facilities.
  • Providing community maintained gardens.
  • Providing new link paths and infill lighting.

Other similar types of scheme that are deemed a priority by the residents in a particular neighbourhood can also be considered.
