Introduction to Community Councils

The public consultation is now complete. You can read more about the feedback and the Council's report on the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils page.

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.

Here are a range of things they do:

  • they comment on local planning applications and the development of the Local and Structure Plan;
  • they campaign on local issues e.g. traffic, leisure facilities;
  • they are consulted on a range of issues by the Council and other public bodies e.g. the future of waste management;
  • some organise gala days;
  • some publish newsletters;
  • some have developed their own websites.

All community council meetings are open to the public, and their minutes and agendas should be available.
