Definition of Community Councils from PKC website -
Community Councils are local voluntary organisations with a difference – they have a right to exist under law and a right to be consulted on planning issues. They are there to represent the views of a local community to the local authority and other agencies and support community activity across a wide range of issues of public interest.
All Community Council meetings are open to the public, their minutes and agendas should be publicly available.
Whilst Community Councils are there to ascertain, co-ordinate and express to their local authority – and other public bodies – the view of the community they represent they can also take such actions that are deemed to be in the interest of that community as appears to be practicable.
Perth and Kinross Council encourages residents to become involved in their local Community Councils. Community Councils are the most local community based tier of elected representation and it is their duty to represent the views of their communities and to act to ensure their wellbeing.
