Take part! Neighbourhood Environment Programme (NEP) – Roads Capital

Posted on

The Neighbourhood Environment Programme (NEP) encourages Edinburgh South Central residents to get involved in making decisions for environmental improvements and allows them to have an influence on a mainstream budget.

Through NEP the community is provided with greater local accountability over environmental spend.

Want a local road prioritised?

The Roads Capital projects are submitted for consideration through various sources including Community Councils, Residents Groups, Councillors, Council Officers and/or you, individual members of the community!

Proposals are then processed by the Local Roads Team and added to the South Central Neighbourhood Partnership NEP portfolio for consideration at South Centra£ Decides.  No date yet for 2017

Take part in the 2017-2018 Programme
