Nominations sought for two Community Councils in Formartine

Nominations are now being sought for all twelve places on Ellon Community Council.

This follows the requisite number of community members requesting that Ellon Community Council be re-established.

Community councils represent the views and act on behalf of local communities, and are a crucial element in the democratic process.

As well as representing the community to the local authority, Community Councils facilitate a wide range of activities which promote the well-being of their communities. Community Councils advise, petition, influence and advocate numerous causes on behalf of local communities.
