Community Council Association/Federation
On occasions Community Councils need to work together for their area. This is called the Community Council Association/Federation.
There are four local Community Council Associations/Federations representing separate parts of Dumfries and Galloway. Each has a slightly different programme and emphasis. Some only represent a proportion of Community Councils in their area. All provide a channel for Community Councils to act together. All provide the local authority and Scottish Government with a vehicle of communication and a means of rapid consultation with the Community Councils in the area.
The aims of these Associations/Federations are:
- to promote the role, effectiveness and status of Community Councils;
- to facilitate the flow of information between Community Councils;
- to provide a forum for discussion of matters of common interest to Community Councils; and
- to work with Dumfries and Galloway Council to achieve our aims.
The 3 Associations/Federations are:
- Annandale and Eskdale Federation of Community Councils
- Dumfries and Lower Nithsdale Federation of Community Councils
- Mid and Upper Nithsdale Association of Community Councils
