The PURPOSE of Community Council is…
“In addition to any other purpose which a Community Council may pursue, the general purpose of a Community Council shall be to ascertain, co-ordinate and express to the local authority for its area, and to other public authorities, the views of the community which it represents, in relation to matters for which those authorities are responsible and to take such action in the interests of that community as appears to it to be expedient and practicable”.
“The purpose of Community Councils is also to represent a full cross-section of the community and it is important that they should not appear to favour any particular sections of the community. By implication, this also means that they should not be party-political or sectarian. Community Councils should eliminate racial discrimination and promote equality of opportunity and good relations between persons of different racial groups.”
