Community Councils - information

Every community in the Stirling area has a community council. These represent the communities' views to the local authority and other public bodies. They also have an important role to play in commenting on how plans and issues affect their communities - for example, Stirling Council must consult them on planning and some licensing issues.

Community councils are set up in accordance with Section 22 of the 1994 Local Government Etc (Scotland) Act and Section 51 (2) of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973.
