Welcome to Eskdalemuir Community Council Web Page

Eskdalemuir Community Council is a voluntary organisation set up by statute by the Local Authority and run by local residents to act on behalf of our area. As the most local tier of elected representation, Community Councils play an important role in local democracy. We bridge the gap between local authorities and our community, and help to make public bodies, statutory and private organisations aware of the opinions and needs of the Eskdalemuir community.

Eskdalemuir community council is comprised of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live. We welcome any members of the community to attend our meetings which are held on the 3rd
Thursday of January, March, May, July, September and November at 7.00 pm at the Eskdalemuir Community Hub with other meetings arranged between times as and when the need arises.

 

Contact details for Eskdalemuir Community Council members and further information is available at https://info.dumgal.gov.uk/CommunityCouncils/Home/Detail/86
