Metro Branch Event and AGM

Support your LG Professionals WA Metro Branch

Join the LG Professionals WA Metro Branch for their Annual General Meeting and enjoy an engaging presentation from Andrew Brien, CEO, City of Bayswater on the city's award winning participatory budgeting initiative.

Participatory budgeting is an opportunity for the community to provide input into the budget decision making process. 
The City of Bayswater adopted participatory budgeting and invited the community to help inform their annual operating budget for the 2019/20 financial year.
This was a bold move, which saw the City as the first WA metropolitan local government to formally adopt a budget that been laid out for community input and consisted of an in-depth consultation process that enabled Council to gain a better understanding of the community's priorities in relation to the services it delivers.

Come along to hear about how this award wining participatory budgeting project was developed and implemented in 2019/.20 and the impact that COVID-19 has had on the future planning for participatory budgeting.
