Governance

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 :https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/council-and-government/community-councils

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.

This amended Scheme constitutes TCC ‘s current Governance protocol
