THERE is less than one week remaining to submit your nominations for the Community Council interim elections. 

The deadline to submit nominations for the interim elections to re-establish ten Fife Community Councils, including the Hill of Beath Community Council, is 4 pm on Thursday, October 26. 

Lindsay Thomson, Fife’s Depute Returning Officer, would like to see the re-establishment of as many of these voluntary organisations as possible. 

Central Fife Times: The deadline for nominations is less than one week away.

She said: "With less than a week to go before the nominations submission deadline, I hope as many people as possible in the community council areas going to interim elections stand as candidates so the community councils can be re-established. 

“Representing your area on a community council gives you the opportunity to get involved and make a difference to the lives and livelihoods of the community. 

“We welcome petitions to re-establish these community councils that were not formed in the during the ordinary Community Council elections.” 

The Community Council is run by local residents to act on behalf of its area.

As the most local tier of elected representation, Community Councils play an important role in local democracy. 

Nomination packs for anyone wishing to stand as a candidate can be found here.

For anyone who was a candidate in the ordinary elections and wishes to stand again, send your confirmation of intention to stand to by the nomination deadline. 

More information and application forms can be found on the Fife Council website.
