Community Council schemes and advice for community councils (June 2017)

Initial information (24 LAs’ schemes and supporting documents) was gathered on 5 June 2017. Schemes and other documents were downloaded from LA websites, where possible, then uploaded to this blog as PDFs. Hence documents may be out of date after June 2017. Community, Knowledge, Connections authors take no liability for anything caused by this, by broken links, or by the contents of documents and web-pages uploaded to or linked to from this page.

Most schemes were directly accessible from local authority web-pages about community councils. Bold entries in the right-hand column show where schemes could not be found online by normal Google searches or searches within LA websites.

When schemes could not be found online, CCLOs were asked for relevant links. As of 16 June, links to or copies of three more schemes have been provided by CCLOs, and one set of broken links has been fixed. So there are 28 sets of schemes, supporting documents and links to web-pages in the following table.
