The Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils

Community Councils of Aberdeenshire logoCommunity councils have a key role to play, and the scheme provides a framework within which they and the council can co-operate and work together. The council is committed to ensuring successful consultation and working together with community councils in all areas of the council's responsibilities. Following consultation with the public, we finalised the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils. All community councils are required to operate within the terms of the scheme.

The scheme was approved at the full council meeting in September 2021 and was adopted on 1st January 2022.
