Ballater & Crathie Community Council


Welcome to our Ballater & Crathie Community Council Page!

As a  Community Council, we ascertain, co-ordinate and express the views of the community we represent to local authorities and other pubic bodies.  Community Councils were introduced in 1975 when local government was reformed and the former, smaller town councils, were abolished.

All our Council meetings are open to the public, the date for the next one is detailed on our Meetings & Minutes page.  In addition, Minutes, Agendas, Consultations and other public notices can be found in Ballater Library and on the Community Notice Board on the Church Green.

A 'Listening Post' is now scheduled for the last Saturday in every month (excluding July and December) from 11am - 2pm.  These dates will help us better prepare for the subsequent B&CCC Meetings which are the 2nd Monday in every month. Come along and let your local councillors know your opinion on the proposed bus garage, the Co-Op move, business rates, parking or anything that you think Ballater needs.
