Broxburn Community Council comprises of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live. A voluntary organisation set up by statute by West Lothian Council and run by local residents to act on behalf of our local area. 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.
As well as representing the community to the local authority, Community Councils facilitate a wide range of activities which promote the well-being of their communities. They bring local people together to help make things happen, and many Community Councils protect and promote the identity of their community. They advise, petition, influence and advocate numerous causes and cases of concern on behalf of local communities.
Here are some examples of their work from across the county:
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:
Community Councils are the strongest means of becoming involved with your local area. It will give you a good understand of the workings of local government and what is going on locally and nationally. All local authorities in Scotland encourage citizens to become a member of their Community Council.
Community Councils act as a voice for their local area.
