YOUR CHOICE: Discuss and vote for your favourite projects at the local Decision Night

Decision Night results now available:

What is the Community Forum Budget Decision Night?

The Community Forum Budget Decision Night is the key event in the process where project representatives, local residents and Councillors come together to prioritise the projects that have been submitted for the Forum area. In effect, they will decide on the night which projects are to receive a share of the available Community Forum Budget.

Projects will be prioritised using electronic voting handsets. In the first round, delegates are asked to rate each individual project proposal. The 9 highest rating projects will then be put to a second vote, where all delegates can choose the 3 projects they would most want to see supported. The budget is then provisionally allocated to projects in priority order, on a provisional basis. So, the project that has attracted the most votes will receive the funding they requested, followed by the project with the second most votes and so on - until the budget has been fully allocated.

To enable delegates to make an informed decision before they take a vote, delegates will hear presentations from each project, hear a summary of the feedback from the public received through the website and the feedback from the Expert Panel. They will also get a chance to discuss project proposals in more detail with other delegates.
All delegates will also be able to familiarise themselves with the projects before the Decision Night by viewing the project proposals on the Leicestershireforums website.
