Housing Revenue Account

Communal Council Property Improvements

The Estate Development Budget is a tenant choice budget that delivers resident-led improvements for an area.

This budget funds improvements to a council building or council owned land, community facilities or the local environment, and enhances the quality of life for residents in the area.

The projects must benefit the community (not just one household).

Tenant and resident association grants

These grants are provided to resident associations or groups representing residents living in council housing that are recognised by the council. 

Grants cover the admin of the associations and costs involved in taking part in consultation with the council and in telling local people what the organisation is doing, including:

  • phone calls
  • transport to council meetings
  • stationery
  • child care
  • carers' costs
