What is a community council?

their area. Community councils have a statutory right to be consulted on applications for planning permission and licensing boards need to notify
community councils of any new premises license application and applications
that substantially change how an existing premise operates. So what do community councils do? community councils bridge the gap
between local authorities and communities by representing local
people’s views on planning permission licensing applications. community councils vary in size and how
they engage with their community. To promote upcoming meetings they often
post on community notice boards, put flyers and libraries, and share information on social media. Many community councils also work with local
businesses and other local groups to promote consultations events and future

that benefit their community and improve their area. Here’s a few examples many community councils organize events
