Welcome to your Community Council website.
Become a Community Councillor - we need new members to join us. We are looking for people who are proactive, enthusiastic and have a desire to be involved.
The general purpose of Community Councils is to act as a voice for their local area; to raise the views and concerns of local people with The Highland Council and with other public sector bodies and private agencies.
In addition to this, there are any number of activities in which they can become involved which might benefit their area, either working to achieve this on their own or in partnership with other agencies. These can include road improvements, youth projects, environmental initiative and the upgrading of amenities. Many Community Councils also involve themselves in a wide range of other activities including fundraising, organising community events, undertaking environmental and educational projects amongst others.
Anyone can become a member of their Community Council provided they are:
Over 16 years old
Live within the specified boundary
Are on the electoral register for that area
If you feel you can help us and can come to our Community Council meetings on one evening a month....please ring Janet on 01463 221185 for a chat or come along to our next meeting and meet the members (see date of next meeting at the foot of this page)
Community Councils are voluntary organisations set up by statute to bridge the gap between the local community and the local authority. There are currently 1200 Community Councils in Scotland.
Their primary purpose is to ascertain and express the views and needs of the community to the local authority and other public bodies
The Community Council welcomes your input and will do all they can to get answers and solutions to your concerns and queries.
Next Meeting 29th June 2017 at 7.30 in Culcabock and Drakies Community Hall, Grebe Avenue.
