They are non-viable projects:

Citizens' proposals for participative budgets that do not deal with the following expenditure chapters of the City Council budget: "Expenditure on current goods and services" (Chapter II), provided that they do not affect contracts in force and provided that their expenditure is for a specific action or otherwise does not extend beyond two years, on "Current Transfers" (Chapter IV), "Investments" (Chapter VI) and on "Capital Transfers" (Chapter VII).

If it is not the competence of the Town Hall.

If its cost exceeds the amounts determined for the whole city and districts.

If, in order to carry it out, steps have to be taken that do not depend on the City Council, or it is not relatively certain that they will be able to be carried out correctly (for example: a construction on a plot of land that is not municipal, transport actions that correspond to the Transport Consortium).

If the project is already planned to carry it out (which implies some file or similar already taken previously, where the latter can be clearly justified).

If the project presented involves the carrying out of actions, tenders or aid concessions that may economically favour third parties or generate economic interest (e.g., renting a specific premises or granting subsidies with a nominative character). Technical or legal inviability: due to the application of the legally applicable regime (e.g., income aid would not fall under municipal competence).


Generic project:

if the lack of concretion makes its evaluation totally impossible (in the case that the person who evaluates it could specify a possible reasonable execution and adjusted to the spirit of the project, it will not be marked as unfeasible).


if the project includes several, some being viable and others not, it will be considered unfeasible as a whole.

In these cases, an e-mail will be sent to the proposer, explaining the reason for the non-viability with the possibility of re-elaborating the project.

Any other case of non-viability must be considered exceptional and must be exhaustively argued in such a way that the answer is satisfactory for the person presenting the project. The latter should be the general criterion when choosing one case or the other.
