(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)
The City of Edinburgh Council is currently considering carrying out a statutory consultation on a revised Scheme for Community Councils. The Scheme_for_Community_Councils is the key document establishing governance, relationship with the Council and procedural rules for community councils in Edinburgh.
The current Scheme for Community Councils was approved by the City of Edinburgh Council in 2013. A number of areas have been identified where the current Scheme does not provide sufficient clarity or guidance. A formal review is therefore proposed in order to strengthen the community council governance and decision making framework by building upon the existing document. A final decision on whether to proceed to statutory consultation will be taken by Councillors in February 2019.
Key stakeholders are asked to complete the questionnaire (linked below) to help formulate proposals:
