A Community Council is a voluntary organisation set up by statute by the Local Authority and run by local residents to act on behalf of its area. As the most local tier of elected representation, Community Councils play an important role in local democracy. Community Councils are comprised of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live.
Feughside Community Council was formed in December 2020 following the dissolution of the Feughdee West Community Council (FWCC) and the formation of the two new Community Councils of Inchmarlo, Brathens and Glassel ( IBG) CC and Feughside CC. This was undertaken following the review process of the Community Action Plan ( CAP) which highlighted the differing needs within FWCC resulting in the dissolution of FWCC and the formation of two smaller more focussed CC's.
Feughside Community Council facilitates a wide range of activities which promote the well-being of the area. We bring local people together to help make things happen and promote the identity of their community. We can advise, petition, influence and advocate numerous causes and cases of concern on behalf of local people, including:
Feughside CC is one of the strongest means of becoming more involved with our area and we hope this website can act as a first point of call for those who may wish to become more involved, or just gather information.
Feughside CC meets at 19:30 on the final Thursday of every month in the Strachan Village hall
Members of the public are always welcome and we would love to see you at one of our upcoming meetings:

Meetings are open session and an excellent opportunity to voice your suggestions or concerns whether they relate to planning, transport, general community issues or to apply for windfarm funding. The council exists to represent the local community and the greater the active participation at the meetings the more successful we will be.
