Eco Fund logoThe Eco Fund is available to individuals and groups in the borough that can demonstrate good ways to become greener.


The council will give a share of the £5000 grant pot to people who can think of a way to:


  • Reduce waste
  • Increase recycling/composting
  • Reduce energy and resource usage
  • Encourage sustainable travel
  • Improve local environmental quality

Examples could include a group of neighbours in a block of flats getting together to buy equipment to compost household waste or shred garden waste, or creating or improving a community garden.

Successful applicants will need to demonstrate the effectiveness of their scheme, and it will need to be something that can be copied by others.
