The final phase of the Community Council Consultation is underway.   

Dundee City Council is seeking observations on the Proposed Amendments to the Council's Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils. 

The Children, Families and Communities Committee heard an update of the previous two consultations and agreed for the third and final consultation to go ahead.  

This review of the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils will help determine how Dundee's community councils will look and operate in the future.  

Views are being sought on proposals for:  

Boundary changes to some current community councils to reflect Dundee's communities more accurately in 2024 and beyond  

An increase in the admin grant to community councils  

Recognising the statutory rights community councils have to take part in processes affecting their community. 

An increased role for 16- and 17-year-olds to take part in community councils   

This four-week consultation will run until 14 June 2024. 

Children, Families and Communities Convener Stewart Hunter said: "Community Councils are hugely important voice for our local communities to encourage change. 

"Local community councils play a key role in making your local area a better place to live and ensure your voice is heard. Council’s work hard to listen to and promote community councils.  

"We want to make sure Dundee’s community councils are fit for purpose, and I hope this will do that and I would urge you to take part in this consultation."

The proposed amendments to the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils and Associated Documentation may be examined online at the Dundee City Council Website.
