Everything in this section represents James and Susan’s current thoughts and may well be totally changed by the Core Group, in consultation with various mentors and experts who may (probably do!) know better!  But people keep asking us about our thoughts on governance, so here they are!  The key parts are:

It is our intention that Foldehampton will be a well-functioning democracy in which everyone feels that they can have their say … without having that democracy become onerous.  We have seen a number of communities where people get fed up with interminable meetings where nothing ever gets done!

All of these bodies: the Core Group, FoCLE, the FDC and the other bodies need constitutions that allow for a reasonably frequent change of members, providing a balance of fresh blood as well as continuity.  These constitutions remain to be written, probably by a sub-group of the Core Group.  Fancy the task?
