Effective from: 18/05/2019

Following debate (Councillor Anood Al-Samerai), the recommendations contained with the report were put to the vote and declared Carried.  

 

RESOLVED:

 

1.  That Council Assembly agreed the proposal to replace Community Councils (CCs) with a more flexible and devolved Empowering Communities Programme, that promotes:

 

·  Resident-led initiatives

·  Strengthens the local leadership role of ward councillors

·  Cabinet accountability

·  Community Champion councillors

·  Transparency of funding.

 

2.  That council assembly noted that there would still be opportunities to discuss Cleaner Greener Safer capital programmes (CGS), Devolved Highways, and Neighbourhoods Fund applications at ward meetings.

That council assembly noted that the following recommendations will be considered by the Leader as an IDM:

 

6.  To approve the creation of a Democracy Fund to allow communities to hold their own events/meetings to tackle local priorities.

 

7.  To approve the introduction of a new Ward Fund for ward councillors to organise at least six ward based meetings a year.

 

8.  To introduce the option for an Annual Residents' Conference.

 

9.  The leader will be asked to delegate executive functions for Neighbourhoods Fund, CGS and Devolved Highways to ward councillors.
