#myvoicemyAND and the Big Plan for Ards and North Down

Since April 2015, Ards and North Down Borough Council has been facilitating Community Planning by working in partnership with organisations who provide public services. The Big Conversation was used to engage with people and find out what they like and dislike about living in Ards and North Down. To help the public get more involved in democratic decisions, the Council’s Community Planning Service is running a participatory budgeting pilot.
