Carron Valley & District Community Council (CVDCC)  is made up of residents living in the local area who volunteer their time, skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to make the local community an even better place to live, work and enjoy.

The CDVDD meets every month to discuss and take action on local issues. Residents are welcome, and are encouraged, to join in with these meetings. Whether it be to listen in and find out more about what the CVDCC does; to input on a specific topic which is being discussed; or to raise an item of importance which you would like the Community Councils support on. Meetings currently take place via Zoom, details can be found below, and minutes of all previous meetings can be found via the links below.

Along side CVDCC Councillors and other residents, monthly meetings are attended by the areas elected representatives, local Police officers and Stirling Council representatives, along with other guests as relevant to the topics on the agenda. 

What a Community Council is

Community councils are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland. They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities, and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent. It is a voluntary organisation, run by local residents to act on behalf of its area. 

Community Councillors represent local people, voice peoples’ views on important decisions which affect them and work with others to improve services. 

Councillors

Community Councillors are elected volunteers. Elections take place approximately every four years (dependent on local elections) where people are nominated to stand as new Community Councillors. If there are more nominations than places on the Community Council, a postal ballot takes place. The next Community Council elections will take place in 2023.
