Community Councils

Representing local people

Community Councils are groups of people who care about their community and want to make their area a better place to live. They have an important role in local democracy. They represent the views of local people on Neighbourhood Partnerships and convey these views to the Council and other organisations.

Councils are governed by the Scheme for Community Councils. Download part of the Information for Community Councillors.
