Community Councils Consultation 2019 Phase 1 Survey Results

Community Councils Consultation Phase 2

The Council is undertaking a review of the Scheme for Establishment of Community Councils (the Scheme), in line with procedures outlined within the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, and we want to know what you think about the proposed amendments to the Scheme.

The act requires Local Authorities to review the Scheme for Establishment from time to time, and to take into consideration changing circumstances.

The purpose of the Scheme for Establishment is to outline the community council areas and to identify the roles and responsibilities of a Community Council, their governance arrangements, and the support which will be provided by South Ayrshire Council.

In order to do this South Ayrshire Council have agreed to undertake a full review of the scheme, in two phases. Phase 1 which consulted on community council boundaries and the formula for determining community council membership was concluded in June 2019.

We are now moving to Phase 2 of this process to ask you to comment on the Scheme of Establishment.

The new Scheme for Establishment will include the outcome of Phase 1 of the consultation process, and we are now looking for feedback on the proposed amendments to the Scheme governance documents.
