We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We asked for your views on a proposal to co-locate Alloa’s police operations within Clackmannanshire Council’s head quarters in Kilncraigs, Alloa.

You Said

Six key themes have emerged from your feedback:  Service Delivery; Building and Facilities; Parking, Roads and Vehicles; Reception and Risk; Organisational Culture; and Finance and Savings.  The issues of concern to most of the 387 respondents was parking, whilst many felt the proposal would benefit citizens of Clackmannanshire through more opportunities for collaborative working between Police and Clackmannanshire Council. 

We Did

Six short-life task groups have been set up to review each of the feedback themes.  Actions will be identified to address your key concerns and build the basis for business case options.

We Asked

We asked for final comments on the content and wording of a proposed new Scheme to ensure it is clear and fit for purpose.

You Said

The provision for more frequent elections would be a distraction from core community council business, but that community councils should still be able to replace members who leave and recruit to fill vacancies within the election cycle as long as safeguards were in place to ensure democratic legitimacy.

We Did

We re-worded some of the text for clarity without changing the principle. 

We removed the provision for top-up elections and amended the provision for elections which community councils can request when their numbers drop. 

We added a clause to the provision for co-option to require community councils to  publicise in advance the procedure for co-option as well as the intention to co-opt to replace a member who has left.

We Asked

We asked for your views on the proposed Scheme and in particular what we felt were the key aspects of

  • how people become community councillors
  • how community councils involve residents
  • how to maintain standards of representation

You Said

You said

  • community councils should be able to replace quickly members who leave
  • community councils should be able to involve residents in a volunteer capacity
  • there should be a complaints procedure for community councils and a way of dealing with a community council which is not functioning to the standards expected of a community council

 

We Did

We have proposed

  • the addition of a provision for co-opting people to fill vacancies arising in between elections
  • no major changes regarding how community councils involve residents, but amendments to the constitution to make it clear that involving people as volunteers is allowed
  • research to look at a complaints procedure that can be adopted by all of Clackmannanshire's community councils, but not as a provision in the Scheme at this stage.
