Community Councils


Community Councils are statutory bodies, set up by an Act of Parliament.  Their term of office is 3 years, with the next elections due to take place in October 2015.  They have no executive powers although being close to and part of the local community they play a vital role in representing the views of the community to local authorities and other public bodies. 

They receive annual grants from the City Council (minimum 500 plus a sum equal to 11p per elector in the CC area).  Anyone who lives within the CC area and whose name is on the electoral roll can be nominated or apply to become a Community Councillor.  There are also places for young people aged 16 and 17 years and other co-options are allowed.
