Last July I posted on the announcement of the expected closure of the Association of Scottish Community Councils, noting many saw it had lost the confidence of many local community councils.
This week a meeting (26th January) will take place at Edinburgh University when the topic Scottish Community Councils: Local Democracy at Stake will be explored. More details here.
It is held in tandem with a fledgling new body, the Network of Community Councils, which involves Terry Tweed of Craigmillar Community Council and Jenny Mackenzie of Leith Community Council. Tony Harris, a Grange/Prestonfield community councillor will also be attending to monitor developments.
Meanwhile see here for a recent post on the folding of Southside Community Council.
