A bit more about us
Seil and Easdale Community Council is a statutory body established under the provisions of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 as amended by the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Scotland) Act 1981 and the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1994.
The community represented by the Community Council covers Polling District AR11
The general purpose of the Community Council is to ascertain, co-ordinate and express to the local authorities for its area, and to public authorities, the views of the community it represents, and to take such action, in the interests of the community, which is both expedient and practicable.
We have public meetings six times per year. This is where we share information with the community and try to gather people’s views on important local issues.
The Seilachan is the local bimonthly newsletter. It contains a report compiled by the Community Council with a summary of what is discussed at public meetings, as well as updates from the Hall committee and other local news; it is hand delivered by local volunt eers which is greatly appreciated.
We receive a lot of information from Argyll and Bute Council, members of the community and other organisations, much of which requires attention quite quickly. For this reason, the Community Council also meet on months in between the public meetings. This allows us to discuss any urgent matters and progress any actions that have been agreed. We have one further brief meeting two weeks before a public meeting; this is to agree the agenda, which is legally required to be publicly displayed seven days in advance of the public meeting.
We have recently decided to expand our online profile by setting up a Facebook page. We are hoping that this will help us to reach a wider audience within the community and there are many functions which may be useful to us in the future for seeking people’s views and sharing information. We are happy to receive comments and feedback and we just ask that people remember this is a public page, so please be considerate and respectful. If anyone has any thoughts or comments about what we are doing, please feel free to get in touch here or via email.
