What is Participatory Budgeting (PB)?

PB enables residents to decide how public money should be spent in their communities. The Scottish Government supports PB as a tool for community engagement and to build on the wider development of participatory democracy in Scotland. It is funding local projects to investigate the benefits for increasing community participation and getting services to put the needs of the community at the heart of their planning.
