CHAPTER 4APPOINTMENT OF COMMUNITY YOUTH REPRESENTATIVES

118Appointment of community youth representatives by community councils

(1)A community council may appoint no more than two individuals to act at any one time as community youth representatives (but this is subject to section 119).

(2)For the purposes of subsection (1) a “community youth representative” is an individual—

(a)who is over the age of 15 but has not attained the age of 26; and

(b)whom the community council considers to be suitable to act as a community representative, that is to represent the interests of those individuals who live, work or receive education or training in the community area who have not attained the age of 26.

(3)A youth representative is to hold and vacate office in accordance with the terms of the representative’s appointment.

(4)But a youth representative’s appointment shall cease if the representative attains the age of 26.

119Notice requirements in connection with youth representative appointments

(1)A community council must not appoint an individual as a community youth representative under section 118 unless the council has complied with the requirements of this section.

(2)The council must give public notice of its intention to make a community youth representative appointment.

(3)In its application to the giving of a notice under this section, section 232 of the Local Government Act 1972 shall have effect subject to the modifications contained in subsections (4) and (5).

(4)The first modification is that subsection (1)(b) of section 232 is substituted by the following—

(b)by giving the notice to the head teacher and proprietor of any school any part of whose premises is situated within the area of the community or communities for which the community council is established;

(c)by giving the notice to the principal and governing body of any institution within the further or higher education sector any part of whose premises is situated within the area of the community or communities for which the community council is established; and

(d)in such other manner, if any, as appears to the community council to be desirable for ensuring that as many individuals as possible who may be eligible for appointment as community youth representatives are aware that the council intends to appoint such a representative..

(5)The second modification is that the following is inserted at the end of section 232—

(3)Where a term used in paragraph (b) or (c) of subsection (1) is defined by the Education Act 1996, that definition shall apply for the purposes of those paragraphs.

(4)The reference in subsection (1)(c) to the principal or governing body of an institution includes a reference to a person with functions that are similar to those of a principal or governing body..

(6)The public notice must contain—

(a)contact details of an individual from whom further information about the appointment, and the process of selecting a person for appointment, may be obtained;

(b)such other information as the community council considers appropriate; and

(c)such other information as is required to be included in the notice by any regulations made by the Welsh Ministers.

120Guidance about appointment of community youth representatives

(1)In exercising functions under sections 118 and 119, a community council must have regard to guidance given by the Welsh Ministers.

(2)The reference to functions in subsection (1) includes a reference to functions under section 232 of the Local Government Act 1972 as it applies in relation to a notice required to be given under section 119(2) of this Measure.

121Effect of appointment as a community youth representative

A community youth representative is not a member of the community council which appointed the representative, but the Welsh Ministers may by regulations provide that a community youth representative is to be treated for prescribed purposes as a member of the council which appointed the representative.
