Community Councils

Community Councils are made up of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live.

As well as representing the community, Community Councils facilitate activities which promote their communities and bring local people together to help make things happen.


Community councils are elected every 4 years.

The last Community Council elections took place on Thursday, 13 November 2014.
