Nairn West & Suburban Community Council in Abeyance - Seeks Additional Members in Upcoming Nominations Processordinance survey type map of Nairn West & Suburban Council boundaries

Would you like to be part of the Nairn West and Suburban Community Council (NWSCC) and help provide a voice for our designated area in Nairn?

NWSCC fell into abeyance in October 2023 for failing to meet the minimum number of six nominations to form a council.  The former members are presently meeting as an in formal 'community group' until a second opportuntiy is provided by Highland Council to form a council in January 2024.

Between 15-30 January 2024, Highland Council will be seeking online nominations from residents in the catchment area to form the Community Council.  Further details and the nomination form may be found here ('what is a community council') and at the 'about' section of our website. NWSCC may comprise up to eleven members and if there are more than eleven nominations an election will be held.

Community Council membership involves articulating views and concerns of local people on a wide range of issues of public concern and making representations to The Highland Council, other public bodies and private agencies within their sphere of interest. The Minutes of previous meetings give a flavour of the issues being addressed.  To operate effectively a CC needs a mix of ages, willing to learn about local government, give feedback and listen to others viewpoint.  

The Community Council meets monthly normally September through to May.  The Annual General meeting is  normally held before the May ordinary meeting annually.

If you would like to find out more, please make contact via the NWSCC website on the Contact Us page.  A member of the team will follow-up and answer your questions.
