Housing Environment Improvement Programme (HEIP)
The Housing Environment Improvement Programme (HEIP) helps to deliver local priorities including things that tenants have identified as important in their area.
Ideas for making your area a better place to live, which might attract HEIP funding, were submitted to your local councillor, Residents' Association, Community Involvement Officer or Housing Management Officer, for discussion at a ward team meeting.
The HEIP Panel met on 2 August to assess the suggestons. View the outcome of the assesment on scheme suggestions as submitted by the Fishergate Ward Team.
The schemes that meet the criteria were reviewed at a HEIP Panel meeting on 3 October 2017. You can view the Fishergate HEIP Action Plan update online.
