Nominations are being invited from people seeking election to 9 community councils in the Highlands, including Staffin Community Council.
The need to hold interim elections has come about due to the resignation of some members which have brought the community councils down to below half of their memberships.
To stand for election candidates must be entered in the current Electoral Register for the Community Council area.
The deadline for receiving all nominations is 4pm on Wednesday, 30 May 2018 and elections will take place on Thursday 28 June 2018.
Nomination forms and copies of the scheme for the establishment of Community Councils can be:
- downloaded from the ‘Community Councils’ section of Highland Council website at www.highland.gov.uk/elections
- by phoning the Council’s Service Centre on 01349 886606.
