Community councils

Community Councils of Aberdeenshire logo

Community councils are voluntary organisations that act as a voice for their local area. Every local community can request their local authority to establish a community council in their area.

They meet regularly to discuss issues affecting their area, including planning and licensing applications. All meetings are held in public and residents are encouraged to attend their local meeting.
