Which Community Council can I stand for

There are 20 community councils across Moray. They vary in size, some are limited to town areas, some cover a group of communities and some cover rural areas and dispersed communities.

A list of the Moray community councils in this election follows including the number of seats available and a link to a map of the area. Some community councils are split into sub-divisions, usually where a community council is made up of two or more larger communities.

Candidates will be asked on their nomination form which community council (and sub-division where applicable) they are standing for. For more information about the boundaries, membership or areas that the community council covers please contact the election office on 01343 563334 or email election.enquiries@moray.gov.uk.
