Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils

The Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils is a policy document which Community Councils must adhere to in order to remain constitutional.  The model constitution used by Community Councils is also contained within the document, along with the Code of Conduct and Standing Orders for Community Councils.

Nomination Form

The Nomination form has to be completed by a proposer and seconder, along with the nominee, who must all be of voting age and reside within the Community Council area.  This form is used for elections and by-elections.  Elections take place every 4 years, the next election being 2018.  By signing a nomination form, you are agreeing to abide by the Community Council's Code of Conduct (contained within the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils)
