Community Councils

The main role of a community council is to ascertain, articulate and express the views and concerns of local residents to Renfrewshire Council and its community planning partners - Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, NHS etc. The Renfrewshire Council area is divided into 25 community council areas and 20 of these areas have an active community council (see below for details).  There are no active community councils in Charleston, Craigielea, Gallowhill, Glenburn or Hunterhill and we would welcome enquiries from residents who want to set up community councils in these areas.  Members are volunteers and are elected to community councils every four years. A successful election in September 2015 returned 308 residents as members of their local community councils.  However, there are still membership places available for residents on all our active community councils.
