A troubled community council which saw its entire ruling group stand down is being wound up after failing to attract any new members.

Local authority bosses have been called in to officially dissolve the Southside Community Council.

An appeal for new members was issued last month, with ten positions available to be filled.

The vacant posts came after the community council’s chair, vice-chair and secretary all resigned at the same time, amid claims there had been disagreements between members, with advice sought over expulsions and suspensions.
