WHAT IS A COMMUNITY COUNCIL?

'Community councils are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland. They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities, and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent.' (gov.scot )

Community councils are non-party-political and community councillors are volunteers. In Aberdeenshire, community councillors are elected annually for a term of three years.
