Introduction

What is this consultation about?
 
This consultation sets out the proposals we have developed for a new model of community level governance, and seeks views on whether (a) people agree with the direction of these proposals and (b) how we should put these proposals into action.

When we talk about Community Level Governance, we mean the formal structures by which local communities engage with the Council and other public services. Currently in Renfrewshire, this is done through a structure of committees called ‘Local Area Committees’ (or ‘LACs’) which were established as formal committees of the Council in 2007.

In order to develop these proposals, we have reviewed our current system of Local Area Committees to understand how well they work, as well as looking at other models across Scotland. We have already done some engagement around the review of Local Area Committees which you may have been involved with. Following what we have learnt from the review, we have developed a series of proposals for a future model of community level governance.

We will also be organising consultation events across Renfrewshire over the coming weeks and months for people to discuss the proposals and give us their feedback. If you have a community meeting or group that you think would be interested in discussing the proposals, please let us know. We are happy to visit groups to discuss the proposals in more detail and gather your feedback there.

If you have any questions or need this survey in a different format, please get in touch by emailing communityplanning@renfrewshire.gov.uk or call on 0141 618 4168.
