INVERNESS SOUTH COMMUNITY COUNCIL
This website is for news concerning Inverness South. We will publish as much helpful information as we can about things of interest to residents. It is also a vehicle for you to tell us about things of interest and concern to you.
Meetings are normally held on the first Monday of each month (except summer months) at Inshes Primary. For specific dates, please see 'ISCC MEETINGS'
The ISCC welcomes public participation and encourages attendance at our meetings - just a couple of hours each month. Please come along to hear what is happening in our area and have your say
COMMUNITY COUNCIL ELECTIONS
Community Council elections are taking place this year.
Community Council elections occur every four years and they will take place this autumn. Anyone that wishes to be a Community Councillor must nominate themselves, including people that are currently Community Councillors. If there are more nominations than places on the Community Council then an election ballot will take place.
Anyone can nominate themselves to be a Community Councillor, provided they:
Are aged 16 or over*
Boundaries can be found on the Highland Council website: http://www.highland.gov.uk/info/772/politicians_elections_and_democracy/364/community_councils
*16 and 17 year olds need to be registered on the Supplementary Register for Community Council elections. Registration forms have been made available at schools and can also be accessed here: http://www.highland.gov.uk/info/799/elections_and_voting/643/community_council_elections
Some important dates to note:

You may also wish to publicise the Community Council elections within your area - please contact us through the feedback and suggestions link if you would like us to email a copy of a poster to you. If there are not enough nominations then Community Councils may fail to form. You might want to keep this in mind if you are aware that some of your current Community Councillors plan on standing down.

Community Development / St. Columba Church of Scotland - Annette Maclean, Community Development Worker for Inverness St. Columba Church of Scotland is looking to hear from anyone living in Slackbuie who would be interested in sharing their views on living in the area. As part of a community information gathering project taking place over the summer, Annette is keen to hear from any residents who could be part of a focus group (a single one hour meeting over lunchtime) or who would be willing to complete a short survey. It’s not a big commitment and would just involve a little of your time and opinion! If you are potentially interested please contact Annette on 07738 275956 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
