Community and voluntary sector

Public holiday - Monday 28th September

While we are closed, the council’s website can be used as normal for reporting issues, making payments and sending enquiries. However, no action may be taken on some matters, like requests for support for people self-isolating, validation of planning applications and the processing of applications or enquiries, until we fully reopen on Tuesday 29th September.

Community Empowerment Act

The Scottish Government wants to help communities to do more for themselves and have more say in decisions that affect them.

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 is a new law that will help people do that. 

The Act covers 11 different topics. You can find out more about Community Empowerment here
