  • Priority Based Budgeting (PBB)

    Priority Based Budgeting is described as ‘a way for local government to spend within their means by continuously focusing on the results most relevant to their communities and the programmes that influence those results to the highest possible degree’. Stirling Council embarked on this process for the first time in 2013 and has just launched the 2014 version. Full details are available from the Council's website.

    KCC is fully committed to consulting the community and to producing an agreed response to the report by the beginning of January 2015. We will do this by:

    • Agreeing the options to which we wish respond at our meeting on 19 November. To help with this we have produced two extracts from the full report:
    • Encouraging everyone to attend the Council's ‘Community Conversation’ at Balfron HS on 25 November at 7 pm (dates of other meetings on our website)
    • Agreeing the response which we wish to make to the agreed options at our meeting on 17 December.
    • Taking into consideration any responses which come to us outwith the meetings.

    The ultimate decisions taken by the Council on areas such as education, waste and roads will affect us all, so please consider participating in the consultation process.

  • The final brown wheelie bin collection of 2014 will take place on Thursday 27th November. Fortnightly collections will resume on Thursday 5th March 2015. More details are available on the Refuse Collection page.
