Morvern Community Council
Community councils are voluntary bodies run by local residents to act on behalf of their area. Community councillors play an important role in local democracy, bridging the gap between local authorities and communities, raising awareness of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent. Community councils facilitate activities promoting the well-being of their communities by bringing people together to make things happen. They also advise, influence, and advocate numerous causes and cases of concern on behalf of local communities.
In Morvern the community council aims to uphold the Nolan principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership. We see our role as facilitative, making the most of and celebrating the contribution of our residents and the many other organisations that exist in our community.
More information about community councils and their scheme of delegation can be found on the Highland Council website here and the most up-to-date Code of Practice and rule book by which we work can be downloaded here.
