The process of establishing a Community Council in an area that does not have one begins by a local person asking for a Petition - you can get the Petition to start the process from the Community Engagement Team, contact details can be found at the side of this page. Once the Petition is signed by at least twenty local people who are on the electoral register, and who reside in the boundary area of the Community Council to become established, it can be submitted to the City Council, formally requesting that the formation of a new Community Council shall be initiated in the named area.
Those signing the Petition are not committing themselves to becoming Community Councillors - however Petitioners are showing a commitment to form a steering committee whose task is to familiarise themselves and adopt a Constitution on behalf of the proposed Community Council which will govern its affairs. This part of the process may take several meetings, and the City Council may provide funding to facilitate the steering committee phase, such as providing a venue, and covering any appropriate administrative costs. Once the Constitution is in place, the steering committee is then dissolved, having fulfilled its purpose. Glasgow City Council will then handle the election phase, issuing a call for nominations, and making arrangements to hold an election meeting or contested election.
Below provides an indication of the process to form a Community Council:
1) Request for a Petition by a local resident
2) Completed Petition (signed by 20 local people who are on the electoral register and local residents) is returned to Glasgow City Council
3) Call Petitioners to the inaugural meeting to form a steering committee
4) Inaugural meeting
5) Subsequent steering committee meeting(s)
6) Election arrangements
7) Election Meeting or Contested Election
8) Initial meeting of new community council, organised by Community Engagement Team
