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

and suggesting various changes and additions (helpfully shown in red). These include updates on Community Planning; the inclusion of Scottish Youth Parliament representatives on Community Councils; an Engagement Officer with responsibility for youth and community involvement; changes to the Code of Conduct; and the introduction of a Complaints Procedure.

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.
