Community councils are local voluntary organisations with a difference - they have a right to exist under the law and a right to be consulted on planning issues.
All Councils have to agree a Scheme of Establishment for Community Councils which sets out the areas they cover, election procedures and their powers.
There are 9 community councils covering all the towns and villages in Clackmannanshire.
All community council meetings are open to the public, and their minutes and agendas should be available.
If you would like to know more about the work of your Community Council, please contact the named Office Bearers.
Elections for all of Clackmannanshire Community Council will take place in August 2016 - see election page for further details.
