New community councils created in Marr

Two new community councils have been created in the Marr area.

Feughside Community Council to the south of the River Dee and Inchmarlo, Brathens & Glassel Community Council to the north will replace the existing Feughdee West group.

As there were an equal number of nominations submitted for the number of places available on each community council, no ballot was required and the nominees were all able to be appointed. There were nine appointments to Feughside and seven to Inchmarlo, Brathens and Glassel.

Office bearers for Inchmarlo, Brathens & Glassel will be appointed at its Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, December 9 at 7pm, while those for Feughside will be made at its AGM on Thursday, December 10 at 7.30pm.

Aberdeenshire Council Area Manager Janelle Clark said today (Mon, Nov 30, 2020)that she was delighted with the level of nominations, saying: “I would like to thank all those local residents who have stepped forward to support these new community councils.

“The creation of these two distinct organisations is good news for the two areas and will allow them to develop their own focus on individual needs and aspirations for their communities.”

Contact details for the two community councils can be obtained by emailing marr@aberdeenshire.gov.uk
