Community Councils

First established under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, community councils are voluntary organisations set within a statutory framework.

Their key roles are to :

  • represent the views of the community to the local authority (The Highland Council) and other public bodies operating in their area
  • act to further the interests of their communities
  • be consulted on planning applications within their area
  • consider exercising their powers to object to the granting, renewal or transfer of liquor licences.

There are currently 15 community councils in Skye and a further 10 in the Lochalsh area.

Skye and Lochalsh CVO services help community councils in a variety of ways:

  • community consultation and Community Planning issues

  • promotion - ensuring that your local community is kept up to date

  • finance and fundraising

  • good practice and legislation compliance

 For more information on any of these topics why not visit our Community Toolkit  pages or check out Our Services?
