We are an elected non political organisation. We exist to represent your views on your local community to East Lothian Council and other public authorities, such as the police and health authorities. In other words, since we are close to the people of our local communities, we are a ‘pressure group’. We can bring matters directly to the attention of local government and other authorities. Because we have no ‘power’, we are only effective to the extent that we are in close touch with local opinion. And only if people make sure they pass on their views and suggestions to us.
Community Council meetings are open to the public and are held by rotation in Gullane, Aberlady and Dirleton on the last Thursday of each month, except December. The dates of meetings this year are shown on the Meetings page of this website. Minutes and agendas are also available on the Minutes page and are posted on notice boards and held in the library.
Local Priorities Funding
We receive a grant from East Lothian Council to provide funds toward projects that benefit our local communities. Visit our Local Priorities Page for more information on eligibility and how to apply.
