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.
