All the required Governance documentation, including the Constitution and Complaints Procedure can be found on the dedicated Community Council page on Argyll and Bute Council’s website via this link :

Community Councils are the first ,or the ‘grass roots’, tier of statutory representation. They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities,and help to ensure the public authorities are aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent.

Community Councils are funded by their County Council , in our case Argyll and Bute Council  . The level  of funding is just £400pa. TCC has lobbied unsuccessfully to increase this.

"decorative image with word "Governance"The current Governance of Community Councils evolved from a consultation to the review of  the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils, and associated documentation.  This  ‘assisted in informing and shaping an amended Scheme to take effect from 26 April 2018.’

This amended Scheme constitutes TCC ‘s current Governance protocol.
