Community Council elections are coming soon with more than 400 seats up for grabs in 43 community councils across the Stirling Council area. This is your chance to get involved in local democracy and speak up for your neighbourhood!
Anyone over the age of 16 can be nominated for the community council elections so long as they’re living in the area for which they’re standing and on the current Electoral Register. Alternative proof of residency is required for those under the age of 17 and not able to be on the Register.
Election nomination forms need to be submitted to Stirling Council's Returning Officer by 4.00pm on Friday, 25 October 2013.
Where more nominations are received than there are places on any community council, ballots will be by postal vote. Ballot papers will be issued from Monday 4 November 2013 and must be returned to the Council by Friday 22 November after which results will be announced.
Nomination forms will be available from the Returning Officer, Stirling Council, Room 53, Old Viewforth, Stirling FK8 2ET, phone 01786 233099.
