Nairn West & Suburban Community Council seeks additional members.
Would you like to be part of the Nairn West and Suburban Community Council whose general purpose is to act as a voice for our designated area in Nairn?
This 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 Community Council (CC) category presently available for you to consider joining (applying for) is as a co-opted member.
This category gives the member full voting rights apart from voting on co-option of members.
There is a monthly public meeting September through to May, in addition there are Operational agenda discussions to discuss new and ongoing topics the CC is working on. The Annual General meeting is normally held before the May ordinary meeting annually.
To operate effectively a CC needs a mix of ages, good feedback via the members and a willingness to listen to others viewpoint.
If this has created a glimmer of interest and you would like to find out more, please make contact via the NWSCC website leaving a telephone number. One of us will return your call (it may take a few days) and answer your questions allowing you to make an informed decision.
[There is a wee bit more information on the function of a Community Council on our About page.]
