Welcome to our website

Meetings of the Community Council are usually held on the second Tuesday of every month (except July) in the Community Centre, Preston Road, Prestonpans.  However due to the current ongoing pandemic we are holding our meetings virtually and these meetings are on an adhoc basis and at this moment are unable to invite the wider community to attend.  As soon as we are back to "Business as Usual" we will update the webpage accordingly.

On here you will find a list of current members of the community council, a library of older minutes, a calendar of local events and other information relating to our community.

Should you wish to get in contact with the community council for any reason please email the secretary at prestonpanscommunitycouncil@gmail.com


The next Community Council elections will take place on 7 October 2021.

Community Councils are run on a voluntary basis by local people. They act as a vital link between East Lothian Council and the local area and give residents an opportunity to speak out on local issues of concern. Meetings are usually held once a month.

There are 20 Community Councils in East Lothian:

Cockenzie & Port Seton, Dunbar, Dunpender, East Lammermuir, Garvald & Morham, Gifford, Gullane Area, Haddington & District, Humbie, East & West Saltoun & Bolton, Longniddry, Macmerry & Gladsmuir, Musselburgh & Inveresk, North Berwick, Ormiston, Pencaitland, Prestonpans, Tranent & Elphinstone, Wallyford, West Barns, Whitecraig.

If you are interested in becoming a member of a Community Council you must be age 16 or over.

More information on Community Councils is available on that specific section of the website: https://www.eastlothian.gov.uk/info/210567/your_community/12158/community_councils 


Prestonpans Community Council is now taking applications from local community groups, charities and societies for small grants to assist any existing fund-raising efforts for activities or iterms which benefit members of our community.

If you would like to be considered for such a small grant, please download the application form (titled "Small Grant Application Form") from our Library page (tab on left) and send a completed copy to our secretary at the above email address.

Completed applications will then be considered by the next quorate meeting of the Community Council.


Over the last few years the Community Council has been working with East Lothian Council to secure a grant from the War Memorials Trust to restore and repair the William Birnie Rhind sculpture in the town's Civic Square that was erected in 1922 to commemorate those brave individuals that gave their lives in World War One. More details about the project and the men commemorated can be found at a dedicated website here
