Barrhill Community Council


Meeting dates and agenda or minutes are available on the minutes section of the website.

Community Councils give local people a real say in matters such as local service delivery and other issues which affect daily lives.

Community Councils have a local and statutory interest in the planning process. Local Authorities are required to consult Community Councils on planning applications affecting their areas.

Liquor licensing and some other licensing matters may also be of keen interest to Community Councils and are areas on which Community Councils views might usefully be sought.

Anyone resident within the area of Barrhill Community Council who is aged 18 years or over and who is interested in becoming a Community Councillor should contact the Secretary.

What is the Community Council?

Community Councils are groups of people who give time to, and have a genuine interest in, the well-being of their community. They meet, usually once a month, and their chief role is representative; to consult the local community and to make known to the local authority and other public bodies the views of local people on all matters affecting them. The local authority, in turn, has a duty to consult community councils on how local services are delivered and other issues affecting their neighbourhoods. Community councils have the right to be consulted on any planning applications in their areas and are also kept informed about licensing applications.

The committee members are:

John Thomson - Vice Chairperson
Celia Strain - Joint Secretary/Minutes Secretary
Andy Clegg - Treasurer & Website
Pearl McGibbon    
Bert Houston    
Collette Bailey    
John R. W. Heath
