Irvine Participatory Budgeting

Irvine Participatory Budgeting

On 6th November at the Volunteer Rooms local people and groups made their pitches for up to £850 to help make a difference in their local community.  Irvine’s Participatory Budgeting pot was £26,000. Voting, on the day, was open to local residents who got to hear about the innovative uses planned for the funding and decide on how it should be allocated. Supported by entertainment, refreshments and a free prize draw there was a great community atmosphere.
