Coming Soon – Community Council Elections in Dumfries and Galloway

Elections for the return of all community councils across Dumfries and Galloway will take place on Thursday, October 3.

Community councils play a key role in local decision-making by advising, influencing and advocating on behalf of their local communities.  They are there to encourage and facilitate consultation with their local community and to listen to and act on the views of local people.

Dumfries and Galloway Council is committed to ensuring that local people and communities are at the heart of decision-making and say they want to work closely with community councils to make communities better places to live.

Nominations will be open from Tuesday, August 13 to Tuesday September 3.

If there are more nominations than places on the Community Council an election ballot will be held in that area on Thursday, 3 October 2019.
