Organisation aims and objectives

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 meetings.












Experience required: You will need to be reasonably IT literate. Minutes are typed in MS Word and emailed to members. Correspondence to the community council is normally by email. Some knowledge of Zoom meetings would be useful as some online meetings may continue. Examples of recent minutes can be found on the Moray Council website -http://www.moray.gov.uk/moray_standard/page_60782.html
