Local Government (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 103 – Power of community meeting to apply for an order dissolving its separate community council

116.Introduces a new section 27C in the 1972 Act to set out the conditions which must be met before a community meeting may apply to the principal council for its area for an order to dissolve an existing separate community council for the area. The new subsections (2)-(5) re-enact conditions which apply under the existing provisions. The threshold for a community meeting voting to dissolve a community council remains 30% of the local government electors for the community or 300 of the electors (whichever is the lower) to be present and voting at the meeting. A new threshold is introduced by the new subsection (6) which requires that at least two-thirds of those voting in the community poll support the proposal to dissolve a community council. A bare majority is required at present.
