Updating and revising the Community Council legislation

Updating and revising the Community Council legislation

How does this impact on Community Wellbeing? To give local people more of a say on issues and potential solutions that affect the community Why should the Committee focus on this as part of their future work? It will strengthen the local engagement package and make people feel like they can have a say. It also has to better meet local expectations!

Points

Locality Partnership is becoming more visible and viable as a means of community engagement and empowerment in our area. Brought the communith in through Participatory budgeting, networking events, locality roadshows. People wanting to become involved and having an increased sense of ownership and more input to direction of travel. Building resilience and awareness of capacity in our community, reducing silo working through co-operation and communality. The Cc and local third sector org is dire

Need to listen to local people. Grassroots.

Currently community councils are places for people to complain about an issue, these could be revolutionised to be idea hubs for our communities. We need to sell them and their benefits better

Build better community voice opportunities. This seems to be the easiest solution, to use what is currently in place.
