As part of a national project in the UK to have more communities engage in public consultation projects, Hampshire County Council implemented participatory budgeting in 2012, called "Have Your Say" to allow citizens to engage in democratic processes.

Problems and Purpose

In 2012 Hampshire County Council ran the 'Have Your Say' participatory budgeting initiative across the county. The scheme was intended to involve local people in community decisions and, as such, ran in various locations including Rushmoor, Basingstoke and Deane, Hart, Havant, Test Valley and East Hampshire.

Background History and Context

Organizing, Supporting, and Funding Entities

Participant Recruitment and Selection 

Methods and Tools Used 

This initiative uses participatory budgeting, an increasingly common method of democratic innovation broadly described as "a decision-making process through which citizens deliberate and negotiate over the distribution of public resources." There are many benefits associated with participatory budgeting including increased civic and democratic education; increased government transparency; and an increased opportunity for participation by historically marginalized populations [1]
