Community councils give local people a say about what goes on in their area. They play a vital role in representing the views of their community to us and other public bodies.
There are 107 community councils across Dumfries and Galloway and usually around 90 that are operational at any one time. They have a great deal of scope to get involved in local issues and develop local projects or activities.
How to get involved
There are different ways to get involved in your local community council:
- attend your community council's regular public meetings
- email your local community council or visit their website
- become a community council member
Elections for community councils are every 4 years. The next elections are in 2019. Vacancies also occur from time to time for the election of councillors.
