Community Councils are voluntary organisations that act as a voice for their local area. They meet regularly to discuss issues affecting their area, including planning and licensing applications and are consulted regularly by the local authority on a range of matters. All meetings are public and residents are encouraged to participate their local meeting. Current pandemic restrictions may mean that they are held virtually but are public can join these meetings online.
Every local community can request their local authority to establish a Community Council in their area and in Moray elections are held every four years for existing community councils. Any person 16 years or over and resident in the Community Council area, can be elected or co-opted to their local Community Council.

Meetings of Community Councils during pandemic restrictions
Community Councils in Moray are holding their public meetings remotely via video conferencing during the pandemic restrictions. Please contact the community council directly using the details found on their individual web page (listed to the left). The secretary will then be able to provide you with the joining instructions for their meetings.
The Community Council Scheme provides a framework for the operation of Community Councils and contains information about membership and eligibility, member's code of conduct, Standing Orders, constitution and area descriptions. It is reviewed every four years prior to elections.
A new format of reporting has been agreed between Police Scotland, the Moray Forum and the Joint Community Councils. The report, which replaces the previous individual reports from Police Scotland for each area, involves input from various members of the Community Planning Partnership (CPP).
The CSP report (PDF) has news and information from various agencies including updates from Police Scotland.
Please direct any queries or feedback to the Community Council Liaison Officer.
Please note that due to the pandemic staff are still working at home and council offices are closed, so it may take slightly longer to respond to queries. Please bear with us at this time.
