Community Councils

Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils

Community Councils are voluntary organisations that express the views and concerns of local people within their area across a wide range of issues from new buildings and roads to local services and facilities.

We are responsible for the running the Community Council elections and Members are elected every four years to represent the Community council area. If there are less candidates than seats, no election will be held. If the membership of the community council falls to less than half, then the Community Council will not operate until there are enough members.

The maximum membership of each of the 154 Highland Community Councils is determined by the population it serves and varies from 7 to 13 members. Community Councils are voluntary organisations that act as a voice for their local area. They express the views and concerns of local people within their area on a wide range of issues.
