Participatory Budgeting (PB) gives local people the opportunity to decide where public money is spent in their communities.

There are two types of PB processes, one which distributes funds to local projects and the other which is known as Mainstream PB and allows the public to vote on how the council spends part of its budget. Where appropriate we work in conjunction with  community representatives to arrange, publicise and run events attended by members of the local community, who then vote on which projects or proposals should receive an award.

Further information on Participatory Budgeting can be found in the PB Toolkit, at the PB Scotland website and PB Network website or from the Community Investment Team using the contact details below.
