Working with you to shape Stirling's future

You can find out more about the PBB process including details of specific projects that are either proposed or are already taking place in our latest online newsletter.

Priority Based Budgeting Year 4

We have now moved in to year 4 of PBB.

The focus at present is on the delivery and implementation of the transformational options that Council approved at its budget setting meeting in February.  The Council has managed its finances well in the last three years meaning there are no options to take to the public in 2017-18.

We will continue to develop and improve our approach to Community Engagement and we hope to be able to begin to introduce an element of Participatory Budgeting to our process. This year we had engagement events during November to hear about how you felt the first three years went, what we can do differently and how we can work with communities to make sure we’re getting the right services to you in the right way. 

Ideas Register

Engagement with our communities, staff and other stakeholders has been, and remains, a key part of the PBB process.  We welcome all suggestions on how we might deliver services more effectively and efficiently - every idea that we receive is fully considered.  All ideas received so far have been captured in an Ideas Register, setting out the ideas, describing them in a little more detail where appropriate and explaining if or how they are being developed. Here you can see the latest version of the Register.
