Getting Involved in your Community Council
Approximately every four years people who are interested in improving their communities are asked to come forward as Community Councillors to represent that community's views and work with others to improve their area.
2019 Community Councils
Following close of nominations on 8 February 2019, 7 Community Councils can now be formed, with a further 2 going forward to ballots, which will take place in March.
Following the last Community Council elections some areas did not return Community Councils. Those villages and areas have now been given a second chance to gain representation, by submitting nominations no later than Friday, 8 February at 4pm.
Areas yet to form are -
- Balquhidder, Lochearnhead & Strathyre
- Hillpark & Milton
- King’s Park
- Thornhill & Blairdrummond
Those wishing to stand are encouraged to submit their forms early, to ensure information can be processed in a timely manner.
To be a Community Councillor you need to be:
- over 16 years of age; and
- on the electoral register for the area you wish to represent; and
- living in the Community Council area you wish to represent.
Nominees need a proposer and seconder who both must be on the electoral register and live in the same Community Council area.
2018 Community Council Election
The last Community Council elections took place in 2018 and the next full elections will take place in 2023 following local elections.
