The Your Stirling You Decide Participatory Budget exercise is now within the final stages of the process, and there have been decisions made by a number of communities on their final choices, following community engagement and voting events throughout Stirlingshire.
You can access your community’s choice and others on the Stirling Council website at https://www.stirling.gov.uk/ysydprogress
Your Stirling: You Decide is Stirling’s version of participatory budgeting, an initiative that gives local people a direct say in how a portion of our budget is spent. During 2019 citizens across Stirling’s seven electoral wards had the chance to influence how to spend £100,000 in each of the seven wards, of public money. This year the money could be used
for infrastructure and the environment, for example – roads, pavements, parks playgrounds, outdoor gyms and public spaces to name a few.
During the month of January we will be announcing the remaining communities’ choices on the Stirling Council Website and local social media sites.
