What is Doon Valley outdoor services place-based working?

Outdoor Services are starting to work in a new way to create clean, green and vibrant communities. In future, we will be working in place-based teams starting in the Doon Valley area. We will be working more closely with communities to agree their priorities and what services we provide. In conjunction with our communities, teams will be able to agree on what needs to be done and when.

We want our communities to have access to good quality green spaces, and to protect and enhance our natural environment through working with communities. We want to hear your views as we work together to transform the way we do things and shape how the work of Outdoor Services is delivered in your community.

How can I share my views and opinions?

Outdoor services participatory budgeting in the Doon Valley

Mainstream Participatory Budgeting encourages communities to decide how to spend an allocated portion of a budget. This means communities within the Doon Valley area will have the opportunity to influence how money allocated to Outdoor Services in their area is spent. All your ideas will help to inform how we transform our service.

Voting events will take place during May 2019.
