Community Council Elections  November 2019

Nomination period extended.  Owing to the low level of nominations submitted by the original closing date of 8 October, the nomination period has been extended to Friday 29 October.

Community Council elections are due to take place throughout Highland Region in November.

The nomination period opened on Monday 23rd September and will now close on Tuesday 29 October.  Anyone over 16 and on the Electoral roll for the Black Isle can be nominated or nominate themselves.  Where there are more nominations than seats on the council, an election will be held on 20 November.

Community Councils perform a vital role as the most local tier of local government, and anyone with a few hours a month to spare and a concern for the well-being of their local community should consider putting themselves forward.  Find a current member of your local Community Council and ask them about this interesting and rewarding opportunity.

Download a Nomination pack with nomination form and full information and instructions.
