The council and GCPP is looking for communities to participate in and take decisions on prioritising plans for local areas, a process known as community or participatory budgeting.

Community and voluntary organisations whose proposals meet eligibility criteria will be invited to present their plan at a community budgeting event to be held in their ward

The event in Springburn is on April 21 between 6.30pm – 8.30pm in the Rainbow Hall, Royston. All those eligible must be on the electoral roll.
