Our next Community Council meeting will be held on TUES 10 MARCH 2020 at 7PM in the TOWN HALL. This is our second business meeting of the year.  One topic we will be discussing is the closure of Johnny Cope Road.  If you wish to have your say, please pop along, all welcome.

Meetings of the Community Council are usually held on the second Tuesday of every month (except July) in the Town Hall on the High Street, Prestonpans at 7.00pm and are open to all (please enter by the rear door on New Street). If you haven't been before you will be made most welcome.

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


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
