|Broxburn Community Council is a voluntary organisation set up by statute by West Lothian Council and run
by local residents to act on behalf of our local area. As the most local tier of elected representation,
Community Councils play an important role in local democracy bridging the gap between West Lothian Council
and our local community. We complement the role of the Council but we are not part of local government.
Broxburn Community Council is comprised of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live.
The main functions of the community council are to:
- Determine the views of the community on local issues and express these to the council and other public bodies.
- Safeguard and promote the best interests of the area.
- Bring local people together to help make things happen.
- Be available to advise, petition, influence and advocate causes and cases of concern on behalf of the people of Broxburn.
We have a positive working relationship with West Lothian Council who are keen to share their decision-making powers with
local people and who value the role the community council plays in this process. Regular consultation takes place on a
wide range of issues including planning applications, local plans, decentralisation, and community planning.
Broxburn Community Council exists to represent all people in the area without prejudice and therefore:
- Is non-party political and non-sectarian.
- Represents a full cross-section of the community and encourage the involvement of people regardless of gender,
race, age, disability, nationality or sexual orientation.
Our meetings are open to every resident in Broxburn and we extend a warm welcome to those who come along to join us to
hear what is happening in our community. We meet on the last Monday of every month (except July & December) in the Old
Town Centre in Broxburn at 7pm.
