The Council considered a report which highlighted the potential for our community councils to become inquorate due to a rule within the current scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils which prevents the period for co-opted members to remain community councillors after a period of 6 months.
The Council agreed to amend the current Scheme to dispense with the requirement within the current Scheme which restricts co-opted community councillors from serving a term of more than 6 months to enable those co-opted to remain community councillors for the extended period of the current Scheme.
