What projects are in my area?

There are projects nominated by the local community for the City of Burnside.  Find out what they are by browsing the ideas in your location here.

 
How do I vote?

If you are over 18 years of age, log in or register as a YourSAy member, and then choose your location by dropping a pin on the map, or typing in your street address. Once you have chosen your location, you will be able to see projects that you can add to your shortlist.

You can only add projects to your shortlist that are within your selected neighbourhood. See WHICH PROJECTS CAN I VOTE FOR? below for the voting rules.

You can add as many ideas as you like to your shortlist before you decide which projects to vote for. To submit your vote, choose a minimum of three (3) and a maximum of five (5) ideas, then click the green Vote Now button. If you have more than five ideas in your shortlist you’ll need to remove some until you meet the requirements to have a minimum of three and a maximum of five.

Voting in Fund My Neighbourhood can only be done online on the Fund My Neighbourhood website and requires verification via your mobile phone.  When you log in or register we will send a four-digit code to your mobile.  Enter this code on the website and you can start voting.

If you do not have access to the internet, your local library, or a friend or family member may be able to help you create an email account and vote for ideas in your neighbourhood.

For more information on how to vote, check out this 'how to' video.

Which projects can I vote for?

You can only vote for ideas that are within your selected neighbourhood. The voting is not state-wide. The aim of the Fund My Neighbourhood program is for local people and communities to decide how to improve their local neighbourhood.

You can choose between three and five projects within a radius of five (5) kilometres calculated from your chosen location (where you dropped your pin or entered your address). 

This radius shows you the projects that you can choose from and you can add any of these projects to your shortlist.

A minimum number of projects (30) will be available for you to choose from and add to your shortlist.

If the 5-kilometre radius doesn’t include a minimum of 30 projects, the online voting tool will automatically expand to include the closest 30 projects to your chosen location. For example, if you live in regional South Australia, you may see a much larger radius to ensure you can create your shortlist from a minimum of 30 projects.

Although you can add as many projects as you like to your shortlist, in order to submit your vote, your final selection needs to include a minimum of three and a maximum of five ideas in total. Once you have submitted your final selection, you will not be able to change the projects you have voted for.

You can only vote once in each round of Fund My Neighbourhood.

Round Two will take place in 2018 - join the mailing list for the most up-to-date information on voting and Round Two.

Why can I only vote for projects near me?

We want to find out which projects you and your local community support in your neighbourhood.

If there are projects outside of your selected neighbourhood that you think deserve funding, speak to your friends and family who live nearby these projects and encourage them to get involved and vote for great neighbourhood improvement projects near them.

Why can I only vote online?

The Fund My Neighbourhood program is an online process. This in part helps us ensure the integrity of the voting process because we can verify the votes and enable a large number of people to participate in decision-making in a cost-effective way. Using a combination of the email registration and SMS verification allows us to verify that real people are taking part.

We acknowledge that not everyone has easy access to the internet. Your local library can provide access to the internet and assist with the use of computers. Your local library may also run free digital and online classes that help people become familiar with email addresses and the internet.

Voting closes 5 pm Monday 20 November
