The Community Council is a voluntary organisation that acts as a voice for the local area. It expresses the views and concerns of local people on a wide range of issues. It meets regularly to discuss issues affecting the area, including planning and licensing applications. All meetings are held in public and residents are encouraged to attend.
The Community Council is governed by the scheme of establishment prescribed by Highland Council, which sets out how they should operate, including elections, membership rules and meeting arrangements. At present, there are five elected members out of a maximum of nine, and there is one co-opted member. Between elections, members may be co-opted. Under the terms set by Highland Council, elections will be held in November 2015 (and every four years thereafter) when any resident on the electoral register can stand for nomination.
