Participatory Budgeting

Eco Savvy are pleased to be a part of the panel supporting the Arran Locality Partnership delivering Participatory Budgeting (PB).

Local people will decide on the best projects by voting at the Arran Locality Participatory Budgeting Event on Saturday 23 March 2019 at 10.30am – 1pm Arran High School, Lamlash

Environmentally aware projects that consider sustainability and the circular economy in their approach usually also improve community well being and may therefore be eligible to apply for grants of up to £1,000 from the Locality and Green Health Partnership Funds which have just been launched by the Partnership. 

The Ormidale Pavilion has been booked for an information drop-in session, for anyone interested in applying to Locality or GHP PB funding Monday 21st January – 2-3.45pm.

The Green Health Partnership will be doing a short presentation at the next Community of Arran Networking event on the 23rd of January in Whiting Bay Church Hall from 1pm-3pm, feel free to come along and find out more.

If you have an idea for a project then application forms can be collected from Brodick Library or are available by email:

The closing date for applications is 25 February 2019 at 5pm.
