What to expect in our meetings

The Community Council meetings are held in public and we welcome visitors to our meetings. However, please remember that there is usually a full agenda to get through in a limited period of time, so discussion of individual topics will be managed by the meeting Chair. 

We begin each meeting by noting everyone present at the meeting for our minutes, Community Councillors, visitors, Aberdeenshire Councils, Police etc. If you are joining online, please let us know, when asked, if you have anyone else attending the meeting with you so our records are accurate.

If you have any topics you would like to raise at the meeting, please let us know in advance. This helps us prepare information to discuss at the meeting and makes the best use of time during the meeting.
