Proposed Scheme

The proposed Scheme is available to view or download from these pages and in the consultation database.

The Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils is the document which sets out the governance framework for all community councils in Clackmannanshire. It also includes a description of community council boundaries, how many members each community council has and what the population of each community council area is.

Clackmannanshire Council agreed at its meeting on 12th of January 2017 to undertake a public consultation exercise on the contents of a new Scheme.
