Government—community councils(Question No 1912)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, upon notice, on 27 October 2011:

(1) What are the current contractual arrangements between the Government and the community councils and when do these contracted arrangements expire.

(2) What resourcing does the Government provide to the community councils for their community representation and engagement services.

(3) What discussions have there been in regard to further Government support – financially, administratively, or otherwise.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

1) Two deeds for grants to the community councils are prepared between the Government and the. One is through the Chief Minister and Cabinet Directorate (CMCD), and a second through the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate (ESDD), at the beginning of each financial year.

Prior to payment of the grant, community councils are required to formally acquit their previous financial year’s funds, and provide an audited financial statement and a brief summary of their activities for the year to the Government. These funding arrangements are ongoing.
