Our meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of the month (excluding January & July) in McSence Business Centre, Sycamore Road, Mayfield.
Our Annual General Meeting is held in April.
All decisions will be decided by a simple majority vote
The Chair will have a second and casting vote should there be a tie.
Every motion or amendment is moved and seconded.
Meetings are well controlled and ordered by the Chair. The Chair has the power to adjourn the meeting if there is disorder.
Special Meetings can be called by the Chair, by the written request of at least half of all Community Councillors or on receipt of a written request from 20 members of the Community.
All meetings are open to the public – on rare occasion items of business can be taken in private should it be relating to an individual or matters of a sensitive nature but this must not be the norm and the decisions from that item must be made public.
The order, relevance and competence of contributions from the public shall be determined by the Chair.
