Closed 8 Sep 2017

Opened 30 Jun 2017

Feedback updated 16 Jan 2018

We asked

Following the first stage when you gave us your views on boundaries and membershop, we asked for your comments on other content of the Scheme for the EStablishment of Community Councils.

We gave you two options for responding:

  1. to make any comments or suggestions for the content of the Scheme
  2. to focus on what we feel are the key aspects

You said

You commented mostly on the key aspects.  The feedback can be found at that consultation.

We did

We took the comments and our analysis of them to the December meeting of Clackmannanshire Council and asked for permission to take a draft Scheme to the third stage of consultation


Community Council Review and Survey of Attitudes imageCommunity councils and residents tell us that the governing framework Clackmannanshire Council sets out to help community councils operate democratically could be improved to suit people's current lifestyles and interests.

The framework which sets out how community councils should operate is a fairly long, detailed document called the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils (the Scheme).  Changing it  is a formal process.

We have already asked people to tell us their views on community council boundaries and compostion and their attitudes to community group activity to give us a picture of how people feel about taking part in community activiy and so help us shape the governing framework.

Why your views matter

We are now asking people to tell us about our suggestions for updating the governing framework for community councils (the Scheme) to help residents play a greater part in the life of their community.

You can do this by looking at the proposed draft Scheme and submitting your comments, or by looking at the particular aspects we think need your attention and telling us how you feel about them.

There are two separate questionnaires.   We will consider the results of both in deciding on the content of Clackmannanshire's Scheme.

You have the option to complete one or both questionnaires, depending on your interests.

What happens next

This is the second stage of consultation.  The findings will be presented to Clackmannanshire Council before the final stages begin towards the end of 2017.
