The Future of the Community Council…

Some very disappointing news…..

Falkirk Council only received 2 nominations for the 11 spaces available to form a new Community Council over the next 4 years within the Larbert, Stenhousemuir & Torwood area. This means that at this stage a new Community Council cannot be formed when the current one stands down in a few weeks time.

There is a meeting at Falkirk Council on Tuesday to agree next steps and it is likely if agreed that they will seek further nominations in the run up to Christmas. In advance of this, if you would like to find out more about what is involved, please get in touch by sending us an e-mail (lst-cc@virginmedia.com) or leave a comment on this post or come along to our last meeting on Monday 27th November at 715pm in the halls of Larbert Old Church.

We would urge anyone who may be interested in getting involved to put forward their nomination or express an interest as soon as possible. Without at least 2/3 of spaces being filled, there will not be a Community Council established for this area. This would be a great loss for the local area given the important role that the Community Council plays in representing the local community to Falkirk Council and other statutory bodies.
