Community Models Ltd have been retained by the Improvement Service and SCOTS (the Society of Chief Officers of Transportation in Scotland) to undertake a study on the value of the local roads network in Scotland.
As part of this study, we are consulting with a wide range of stakeholders to gather primary evidence and insights into the importance of the local roads network to the communities it serves, both today and in the future.
I attach a web-link into a specific survey for consideration by community councils across Scotland. It seeks responses to a number of key questions relevant to the study by Wednesday 24 April 2019.
REVIEW OF COMMUNITY COUNCILS SCHEME- your chance to comment
In 2018/19 a public consultation was held on the need for changes in the Community Councils Scheme - the rules and regulations which govern the conduct, procedures and operation of Community Councils.
Based on responses to that consultation, the City of Edinburgh Council has now produced a report reviewing the Community Councils Scheme
This draft Scheme forms part of a Consultation Pack which includes a covering letter, list of contents, recommendations and response form and is available on the Council’s online consultation hub https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/, in libraries and local area offices.
A drop-in session is to be held on 21 February 2019, 3 – 4 pm, Wester Hailes Library, 1 Westside Plaza.
The deadline for responses is 22nd April 2019.
