Welcome to the web presence of the Braeside and Mannofield Community Council.
Community Councils are statutory bodies, set up by an Act of Parliament. Their term of office is 3 years and they receive an annual grant from the City Council.
They have no executive powers although being close to and part of the local community they play a vital role in representing the views of the community to local authorities and other public bodies.
Anyone who lives within the Community Council area and whose name is on the electoral roll can be nominated or apply to become a Community Councillor.
There are also places for young people aged 16 and 17 years and other co-options are allowed.
The Braeside and Mannofield Community Council has an upper limit of 12 members.
For full information about Community Councils download the Aberdeen City Council Handbook from the document archive.

Youth Representation

To become a Community Councillor an individual has to be over 18 years of age, on the electoral roll and live within the Community Council area.  There is, however, provision for youth members to sit on the Council.  The youth members should be aged between 16 and 17 and, once again, live within the Community Council boundaries.

At our meeting on 24 November, members were keen to recruit two youth members to the Community Council to represent the views and interests of younger residents. 

Whilst we are writing to Hazlehead and Harlaw Academies about generating interest, if you know of anyone, or if YOU are, interested in filling one of the two vacancies, please contact us on our email bandmcommcouncil@gmail.com
