Welcome to Muirtown Community Council
For 30+yrs, MUIRTOWN COMMUNITY COUNCIL has represented & helped residents of our area with any local issues.
We are located within Ward 14 - OUR immediate area is (14c) covering the area CLACHNHARRY, MUIRTOWN, SCORGUIE, KINMYLIES & HIGHFIELD, out to Tomnahurich.
Our WARD has a total POPULATION of 8,104 - that's a lot of people!! (the larger Ward extends beyond the canal to Balifeary & inc...ludes the City's main Leisure & Recreational areas. Reaching out as far as Loch End via Dochgarroch)
We currently have 8 Elected and 2 Co-opted members including Chairman, Vice-Chair, Secretary & Treasurer. Our members ALL live in the area & although "elected", we are UNPAID & completely unbiased.
We receive a small BUDGET which we can use to provide donations of financial assistance/sponsorship to any local individual/team/youth group/community project etc - we have close links to the Charleston Community Complex & Local Primary Schools and regularly provide prizes and sponsorship to them.
Our Highland Councillors (Cllr G Ross, Cllr A Graham & Cllr A Duffy) attend our meetings regularly, as well as our Community Beat Officer (PC McLean) ...... SO ..... there are MANY 'EARS' here, at your disposal !!
Our Meetings are usually held on the last Monday of the Month and are open to ANY local resident/group. YOU can contact us to raise any local matters of concern on your behalf, or attend in person.
We really would love to form closer links with everyone in our community - so if you know anyone who might have links to this area; might need help funding a community project; or just want to know more please use the 'Contact Us' tag on the left.
