The Scottish Government are pleased to let you know that as part of their work in collaboration with COSLA to enhance the role of Community Councils, the Improvement Service has developed a Community Council website.
The purpose of the website is to:
· Raise awareness of Community Councils amongst the general public.
· Provide information on the role of a Community Councillor to potential candidates.
· Support new Community Councils/Councillors to access information to help in their work.
· Support Community Councils with good practice case studies.
This is the first time a national website has been developed in Scotland with a focus on Community Councils. They would like to thank all the Community Council Liaison Officers and Community Councillors who provided comments on the website. They would also like to thank Morningside Community Council who won the competition for designing the logo, as well as all the other Community Councils who entered.
They would be grateful if the website could be shared widely with members of the local community. The link is: http://www.communitycouncils.org.uk
Your feedback is important to them so please send any comments to the Community Council mailbox at firstname.lastname@example.org
They hope you find the website helpful and please keep checking back as they continue to upload more good practice case studies in the near future.
