Covid 19 public health restrictions have had an impact on the timeframe of some of the above projects, however, focus is now on keeping pace to work towards delivery or substantial completion of all 2021 funded projects before year end.


No formal discussions have yet commenced on potential 2022 projects to be presented to the NEIC Board for approval in due course. Many factors will be taken into account in the selection of projects but the intention is to keep in line generally with the NEIC Greening Strategy 2018-2026.


The projects will include some residential greening initiatives and public representations in this regarding will be taken into account.
