Community Councils in Dumfries and Galloway are governed by a Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils. The Scheme details how Community Councils operate including elections, meetings, boundaries and finance.
We want to ensure that the Scheme is effective and meets the needs of our Council and Community Councils.
At their meeting of 25 June 2020 Members of Dumfries and Galloway Council agreed that as a result of feedback from the implementation phase of the current Scheme, and a desire to further develop the use of virtual and remote methods, the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils ("the Scheme") should be reviewed and there should be a period of public consultation on proposed amendments of the Scheme.
