Bo'ness Community Council

 Founder members of Bonet.


Most areas of Scotland have a community council. Under the Local Government Scotland Act, local authorities were encouraged to help set up these community-based groups to represent local residents. Community councillors are volunteers and receive no payment for their roles, other than out-of-pocket expenses.

Each community council is regularly asked to comment on a range of issues such as:

• the local environment
• local planning applications
• drinks (liquor) licensing
• local plans
• decentralisation of public services
• community planning.

So if you have a strong view or want to be heard let us know.
