Transition Stroud Council (TSC) is the body that has responsibility for any central decision making on behalf of Transition Stroud.
overseeing the role of any paid posts
any legal/partnership issues
The TSC came into being at the beginning of 2009 following a 9 month consultation process facilitated by the Co-coordinator Support Group. (See final report dated November 2008 - Co-ordinator Support page).
While the Working Groups can make autonomous decisions, it was recognised that some central forum, the TSC, was required for overall strategy, planning and consistency.
It was agreed that each Working Group would send a nominated representative to the TSC. The representative need not necessarily be the group co-ordinator but there must be reasonable continuity of representation, with each nomination to stand for 6 months.
Voting rights in the TSC will be limited to those who have been nominated. Other TS members* and representatives of affiliated organisations may attend as observers but may speak only at the discretion of the chair and speaking rights should normally sought from the chair prior to each meeting.
The TSC agenda is to be circulated in advance to all TS members, who can submit comments via their group representative or via the TSC Co-ordinator.
In addition to the TSC there will be open meetings for all TS members at least once every 6 – 12 months. Agendas for these will be open to requests from members but functions would be to celebrate our successes, consider any upcoming strategic issues before the TSC needs to make a decision on them, and to review draft proposals from the TSC.
