Participatory Budget meeting

Community Funding Meeting

 

The First Public Meeting will be held at Bronington School

 on Wednesday 22nd March  2017

at 6.30 pm.

If you are involved in local community activities, or if you are aware of any situation where money needs to be spent for the benefit of members of our community, please put this date in your diary and come along to the meeting. Please be prepared to describe your idea, tell us how much it will cost (if you can), and to say why your idea should be funded.

The process is very simple:

STEP 1. FIRST PUBLIC MEETING

People explain their ideas and make their “pitch” for the money.

ANYONE CAN PUT FORWARD AN IDEA

STEP 2 VIABILITY & COSTING

The Community Council leads a small team who help “applicants” firm up their costings, and make sure the idea is viable.

STEP 3: SOURCING ADDITIONAL FUNDING

The team will identify additional funding from public, private and charitable sources to swell the core fund so that as many ideas as possible can be funded.

STEP 4.  SECOND PUBLIC MEETING

About 3 months after the first.  The viable projects are presented again, and the public meeting holds a ballot there and then if necessary to decide which projects will be funded.

Examples of how Community money has been allocated the local community include donations towards new play equipment and noticeboards at Bronington School, replacing the windows at Whitewell Parish Rooms and a footpath at Bronington Church.
