Summer election: your chance to join the council

North Kelvin Community Council is holding an interim election this summer to fill 6 (six!) vacancies. We would be delighted to hear from you if you are interested in joining us.

We hold 10 meetings a year on the first Tuesday of the month (no meeting in July or December). At meetings we discuss council business such as planning applications, hear reports from our City Councillors and the local police, and provide a forum for local residents to raise concerns.

Our aim is to improve our local community and to transmit community opinion to Glasgow City Council. Help us make local democracy work for North Kelvin and make this an even better place to live!

You can find out more about how community councils work on the GCC website.

Full details of how to apply are in the public notice (download or see below), but feel free to contact us with any questions.

Closing date: 12 noon, Friday 27 July 2018
