Community Council elections

Community Councils are voluntary organisations that act as a voice for their local area. They express the views and concerns of local people on a wide range of issues.

Every local community can request their local authority to establish a Community Council in their area.

They meet regularly to discuss issues affecting their area, including planning and licensing applications. All meetings are held in public and residents are encouraged to attend their local meeting.

Community Councils are governed by the scheme of establishment. This sets out how they should operate including elections, membership rules and meeting arrangements.
