Report by Director of Finance & Resources
Under reference to item 1 of the Minute of the special meeting of the Council held on 27 June 2019, there was submitted a report by the Director of Finance & Resources relative to the outcome of the consideration by Renfrewshire Community Council Forum (RCCF) of the four proposed amendments to the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils 2015 (the Scheme) that were set out in the published Amended Scheme which was the subject of statutory public consultation.

The report advised that the RCCF determined not to accept the proposal to allow candidates for election to community councils to self-nominate and accepted proposals to make minor amendments to paragraphs 3.8.8, 3.8.12 and 11 of the Scheme.  

The report proposed that the amendment to paragraph 7 to remove the requirement for candidates to be proposed and seconded be rejected, the amendments to paragraphs 3.8.8, 3.8.12 and 11 be accepted and the revised Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils 2019 as set out in the appendix, be adopted with effect from 1 October 2019. 


(a)  That it be agreed that the proposal to amend paragraph 7 of the Scheme be rejected;

(b)  That it be agreed that the proposals to amend paragraphs 3.8.8, 3.8.12 and 11 of the Scheme be accepted;

(c)  That the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils 2019, as appended, be adopted with effect from 1 October 2019; and
