Overview

Stirling Council is in the final stages of reviewing its Scheme of Establishment for Community Councils. The review started in September 2017 and since then there have two 8 week consultation periods. All of the information generated through both these consultations has been reported back to Council at Special Meetings held on 15 March 2018 and 28 June 2018. More details of the review can be found at: Community Council Review
 
As part of the first two consultations, Community Councils, Citizens and other interested parties have been asked to provide feedback on the Governance documents i.e. Scheme of Establishment, Constitution, Standing Orders and Code of Conduct for Community Councillors. Many of the suggestions have been incorporated in to the proposed governance documents including:
  • Eligibility for membership of a Community Council from age 16
  • A new formula for forming Community Councils in those areas with a population of less than 1000
  • Improvements to the Co option process
  • Improvements to the Complaints procedure
This consultation presents the final draft of the 4 key governance documents.
 
During the review there have been suggestions for changes to some Community Council boundaries. We are seeking further feedback on the boundaries for specific areas - Logie/Cambuskenneth, Drymen/Buchanan, Broomridge and Hillpark. Please note any changes to Community Council Boundaries will not affect any other administrative boundaries.
 
This final stage consultation will open on Wednesday 4 July 2018 and close on Wednesday 1 August 2018.
 
The results of the final stage consultation will be presented at a Special Meeting of Stirling Council on the 23 August 2018, at which elected members will be asked to decide upon the Scheme of Establishment for Community Councils.
