ActivityCommunity councils were established under the terms of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 (c.65). They co-ordinate and express to the local authorities for their area and other interested public authorities the views of the communities they represent relating to matters administered by the local authorities. Community councils have a wide remit and can act as campaigning organisations and raise awareness of specific local issues. The parent local authority, Borders Regional Council, devised a scheme concerning the constitution and administration of the community council.
