As previously report, we had hoped to get funding through the Participatory Budgeting programme but was not successful due to a lack of votes for the project.
Howerver we have not given up and applies to
Ardentinny CC have applied to Participatory Budgeting (PB) through A&B Council to replace the existing noticeboard which is no longer fit for purpose.
We are hoping to raise the funds to have a bigger board which will accommodate all the posters and information. At present the board is a bit of a jumble with so much on it which makes it difficult for residents and visitors to read. We would like one which perhaps could be divided to provide each group their individual space.
PB is a way for people to vote for the projects which meet the criteria by giving them "good points"
The website is www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/abpb. Scroll down to the map and click on Bute & Cowal. Choose the Ardentinny project and enter a good point (if you agree of course)
You do not need to register on the website to view the ideas. Those who do register will be notified by email when the voting opens up next year.
You can also access the site through our post on Ardentinny CC facebook page.
We hope you will be able to support us.
