Thank you to everyone who voted in our Autumn round of participatory budgeting.
Digital voting means you can vote from the comfort of your own home, or if you have a smartphone, the bus, the gym or anywhere you have a WiFi connection!
Digital voting isn't intended to replace
community voting events, it just means that
people who may struggle to get along to an
event due to mobility, ill-health, work or
caring commitments can still exercise their
right to vote.
Voting opened on Wednesday 27 November at 2pm and closed at 3.30pm on Saturday 30 November. Over 3 days a total of 274 local people cast their votes - an increase of 41% on the previous highest turnout and something we want to keep building on in 2020.
Successful ideas were announced at the community voting event on 30 November, which celebrated St Andrew's Day with traditional food and a fabulous ceilidh band, and we can't wait to see these ideas put into practice in 2020.
You can read more about the successful ideas here.
