Community Councils

Roles and responsibilities

Community Councils represent and express the views of the whole community they serve and respond to planning and licensing applications.

Planning

We consult with Community Councils on applications in their area. They have 14 days to provide comments. If you have any questions, you can contact the planning and development team.

Licensing

We notify the Community Councils of any licensing applications in their area. They have 21 days to:

  • Object to the application
  • Support the application
  • Look for modifications
  • Ask for conditions to be attached

If you have any questions, you can contact the licensing team at licensing@highland.gov.uk or you can contact your local licensing office.
