Community Council

Community Council

Community Councils (CCs) are voluntary organisations set up by statute and run by local residents to act on behalf of their area. CCs act as a voice for their local area. They must ascertain and express the views of the community to local authorities and other public bodies, and to take action, which appears to be in the interests of its community. They can complement the role of the local authority but are not part of local government. They should have a positive working partnership with the local authority - therefore they must be informed on the council’s policies, and keep the council updated on their activities.CCs are comprised of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live. They are people who have the time to give something back.
