Spend £60,000 – YOU decide!

Residents in the Dalkeith Ward are being given the chance to influence and decide on how £60,000 of public money is spent, based on the priorities of their community. There are four simple steps.

  1. Residents put forward ideas.
  2. The ideas are discussed
  3. Residents vote for their priorities
  4. The ideas with the the most votes have budgets and resources directed to them.

Anyone, so that means you, can suggest a project. There are some conditions.

  1. Projects must be in the Dalkeith Ward
  2. They must be ‘Capital’ spending
  3. They must fit under the theme ‘Community Wellbeing’
  4. They must cost at least £10,000
  5. There should be no ongoing cost for Midlothian Council.

Two ‘ideas Generation’ events are being held.

  1. 10th Aug. Dalkeith Welfare Hall, 24-26 St. Andrew St, 11am-2pm.
  2. 12 Aug. The MARC building, 10 Woodburn Road, 6pm – 8pm
