UPDATE: The next stage of the project “Second Course” (2017/18) has begun with a new additonal partner Triangle Housing. The programme of activities will use Participatory budgeting (PB) – A process of democratic deliberation and decision-making in which communities decide how to allocate part of a municipal or public budget. More news soon.

We’ve been using Sherry Arnstein’s ladder a great deal to explain the purpose of the Waste No Time Project with respect to community planning.

Have a look at the results from the survey that was carried out. Thank you to all who took part.
