X Factor for Fingal!

I'm delighted to champion the SocDems call for Community Budgeting to be expanded into every local Council in Ireland including Fingal County Council.

The idea behind Community Budgeting, often called Participatory Budgeting, is that local residents get a direct say on which local projects are funded by the Council.

An award-winning project in South Dublin Co. Council led the way and proves the viability of the model. €300,000 was set aside, and locals were invited to submit proposals on how it should be spent.

Once the proposals were collated, residents were given 17 projects to choose from and there was a public vote on which projects would receive the funding. Everyone in a given area had a vote, including children.

The winning projects included a multi-games wall, a playground, Christmas lights, free library book banks, a public piano, an urban orchard, and new recycling facilities.

Let's do this!
