ScotstounCC_logoScotstoun Community Council (SCC)  current committee stands down in October 2017 and that creates 13 places available for election of a new community council.

The election is managed by Glasgow City Council and is open to residents within the area who are 16 years of age or older.  Nomination forms require 2 residents to be recorded as proposer and seconder and the form to be returned to City Chambers (by FREEPOST) by 12 noon on Friday 15 September 2017. The candidate, proposer and seconders’ names must appear on the Electoral Register.

The general purpose of a community council is to find out the views of the residents living in the area, to pass these on to the local and national authorities or public agencies and to take action in the interests of the community.

Current secretary June Mitchell is happy to meet with any interested parties to talk about the process and can be emailed on scotscoco@gmail.com. General info about SCC can be found on  facebook and twitter.

Download the nomination form Scotstoun CC Nomination Form 2017 and pop it in an envelope (FREEPOST address is given on the accompanying instructions). Forms can also be handed in to 40 John Street.

You can also pick up a nomination form and freepost envelope from Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre, 64 Balmoral Street G14 0BL.
