Why We Are Consulting
Clackmannanshire’s community councils work within a framework governing how residents establish community councils in the first place and certain aspects of how those community councils then operate. The governing framework, called the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils, sets out common parameters within which they should operate to ensure they maintain standards of democracy in keeping with their function.
Although at a local level residents already have scope to determine much of how their community council goes about its business on a day-to-day basis, we feel the current framework could be amended to better suit modern attitudes to community representation and to reinforce the scope for self-determination.
We are asking people to comment on the document containing these broader aspects of how community councils operate which all community councils should have in common.
