Community Council Elections
Community Councils elections are held every four years. The most recent round of elections was held in September 2023.
What are Community Councils?
Community Councils are voluntary organisations that act as a voice for their local area and are independent of Fife Council.
There are 105 Community Councils in Fife. Community Councils are provided for in statute by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 Part IV and the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994, Chapter 4, Para. 22.
They express the views and concerns of local people on a wide range of issues, bridging the gap between communities and the Council as a local authority. They help shape local priorities through their involvement in community planning partnership groups. Please see our Community Planning page for more information. Community Councils are also represented in the Plan for Fife.
Community Councils meet regularly to discuss issues affecting their area, including planning and licensing applications. All meetings are held in public and residents are encouraged to attend their local meeting.
Please see our Resources, guidance and training section for all Community Council publications.
