This year we shall be celebrating the 500th anniversary and a group. Muchty 500, has been formed to look at ways of celebrating.
Community Councils are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland. They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities, and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent.
Their primary purpose is to ascertain and express the views of the community to the local authority and other public bodies. Many Community Councils also involve themselves in a wide range of other activities including fundraising, organising community events, undertaking environmental and educational projects and much more.
The Auchtermuchty & Strathmiglo Community Council meets on the last Monday of every month except July and January. The meetings are open to the public.
It covers the four communities of Auchtermuchty, Dunshalt, Strathmiglo and Gateside and the meetings are held in those communities in rotation.
