Report by Director of Finance and Resources
Under reference to item 2 of the Minute of the meeting of the Cross Party Sounding Board held on 6 June 2018, there was submitted a report by the Director of Finance & Resources relative to the review of the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils 2015 (the Scheme). 

Proposed amendments were set out in the Draft Scheme which formed Appendix 1 to the report, and the index of amendments, together with an Assessment of Impact formed Appendix 2.  The report advised that before the Scheme could be amended, the Council required to undertake statutory public consultation by inviting community councils and other interested parties to make representations on the content and provisions of the Draft Scheme.  The Draft Scheme included the proposed introduction of a Community Council Complaints Procedure and Guidance and the provision of additional support to help community councils achieve the aims of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015.  

While there were no proposals to amend community council boundaries, it was proposed that the Craigielea Community Council area be amended to be known formally as the Ferguslie Community Council area.


(a) That it be agreed that the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils 2015 be amended as proposed within the Draft Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils;  

(b) That it be agreed that statutory consultation be undertaken on the content and provision of the Draft Scheme with community councils and the public invited to make representations; and

(c) That it be noted that a further report on the outcome of the public consultation exercise and the content and provisions of a final Scheme for adoption by the Council would be submitted to a special meeting of the Council called for that purpose.
