FOI Request - Community Councils Dissolved

Request 101000311578

I would like to know how many Community Councils in Moray have been dissolved since 2009 because the membership has fallen below the prescribed numbers under the Community Council Scheme without being given the opportunity to continue for three more meetings in order to co opt more members.

None.

However as additional information three Community Councils (Buckie – August 2011, Innes – September 2011, Findochty – October 2011) have been dissolved since 2009 as their membership fell below the minimum prescribed membership, however all the Community Councils noted could not co-opt further members as their co-option limit of no more than a third of the total membership would have been exceeded in attempting to meet the minimum membership. Therefore interim elections followed their dissolution
