Alan - yes interested but echo the other comments here. The technique can be useful but needs to be married to forms of local organising that recognise and counter in-build power imbalances in these relationships.Without that we are most likely to remain locked out of local decision making....

Hi Alan - I have been trying to understand what PB actually means in reality in this country.  From the examples I've seen, it's never amounted to much more than councils giving local people a menu of pre-set options amounting to next to no % of the budget, telling them to take their pick, and then telling them they made a choice through a democratic process.  Sometimes wonder if it's just me... so, yes, I am interested in finding out more about the campaign, thanks.
