In October the Community Council Elections will take place.

We have a quota of 11 members for Castle Douglas.

At present we have 5 members and therefore are not operating as a full Community Council.

New members are needed to fulfil our role, anyone who feels that they could give 2 hours a month to meet and discuss local issues please contact the secretary

Barbara Murray on 01556 504872 or email: 

 Who are we?

The Community Council in Castle Douglas has been around since 1975 when Scotland divided Local Authorities into district community areas. The Committee consists of a Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and members, all local to Castle Douglas. Locally elected members and police are also represented at the meetings.

 What do we do?

The role of the Community Council is to

  • Listen to the views of the people within the community and represent their views to public bodies in our area

  • Comment on relevant planning and licensing applications within the area

  • Work with the community to improve our surroundings and quality of life

The Community Council meet in the Castle Douglas Town Hall Chamber at 7 pm on the last Tuesday of every month, except for July and December. The meetings are open to all members of the public.

From time to time we require new members to join the Council and there are vacancies for those who wish to join. For further information please contact one of the members.

Please see list of current Community Council members on the link.

Contact list CC @ 1st December 2015
