You Decide - Participatory Budget

You Decide: Ward 3 - Dunblane & Bridge of Allan

This year’s Participatory Budgeting has been announced. Ideas to be submitted by the 14th April.

People in the Stirling Council area are being asked to decide on how £700,000 (£100,000 for each electoral ward) is to be spent. This year the money can be used for physical infrastructure. This would include for example – roads, pavements, parks, street lighting, potholes, playgrounds, grass cutting, cemeteries, sport pavilions, and other public places and spaces.

This might include:
Village Gateway Feature – provides a sense of place, local identity and a focal point.
Improved road safety measures; speed activated signs.
Pedestrian crossing – Zebra, Toucan or Pegasus crossing.
Planting of an orchard.
Park infrastructure; gates, fences, walls or upgrading footpaths from gravel to tarmac.
Park furniture; benches, picnic benches, litter bins or interpretation boards.
Play equipment for an existing play area; inclusive play or an outdoor gym equipment.

So do you have any ideas on what is needed?
An idea must:
come from people living or working in the area and can include community groups (schools cannot submit ideas, however a parent council can);
be spent on items within the topic mentioned above; cost between £10,000 and £50,000 (but don’t worry if you have no idea how much your idea will cost – we will help cost it);
be work that is within the Council Ward you live or work in.
