Every community in the Stirling area can have a Community Council. They represent the communities' views represent local people, voice peoples’ views on important decisions which affect them and work with others to improve services. They also have an important role to play in commenting on how plans and issues affect their communities - for example, Stirling Council must consult them on planning and some licensing issues.
All Community Council meetings are public meetings where residents can come along to listen to business, give their views or bring concerns to the notice of the Community Council. Meetings are usually monthly with an Annual General Meeting (AGM) once a year. For more information on when and where your local Community Council meets choose your area in the Your Community page.
Joining your Community Council
Every four or five years (dependent on local elections) people who are interested in improving their communities are nominated as Community Councillors to represent that community's views and work with others to improve their area.
To be a Community Councillor you need to be:
- over 16 years of age; and
- on the electoral register for the area you wish to represent; and
- living in the Community Council area you wish to represent.
The next Community Council elections will take place in 2023.
At other times anyone interested in joining can be co-opted by the Community Council if they have vacancies. If you are interested in being involved contact your local Community Council. Contact details are in the Community pages.
