Have Your Say in Participatory Budgeting Voting Day tomorrow!

Participatory Budgeting voting will take place this SATURDAY 8 FEBRUARY

Choice for Angus

 

What is Participatory budgeting

Participatory Budgeting (PB) is about local people deciding how public money is spent.

 

PB comes in all shapes and sizes, but generally looks like this:

  1. ideas are generated about how a budget should be spent
  2. people vote for their priorities
  3. the projects with the most votes get funded

For more information about participatory budgeting see the Angus Council website

If you live in Angus you can have a say in how £200,000 of funding will be spent in your area when voting opens on Saturday 8 February for the 114 projects that have made the final stage of Participatory Budgeting.

To find out more about the 114 projects see the Shaping Angus website.

There’s funding available for  projects in four localities in Angus:

• Forfar and Kirriemuir
