Do you want to influence what goes on in your community?
Thornliebank (& Woodfarm) Community Council meets at 7.15pm on the first Tuesday of most months in Thorntree Hall, Main Street, Thornliebank. Community Councils are an important part of local democracy. They are non-political bodies who are statutory consultees, which means that their views have to be sought by the Council on issues involving community and local planning, licensing matters and any other issues involving the community.
Thornliebank Community Council covers Thornliebank, Woodfarm, parts of Orchard Park, all the way up to Rouken Glen Park. We liaise with East Renfrewshire Council and other local groups such as the Thornliebank Tennants and Residents Association. The Community Council has recently been co-ordinating the Allotments Project, which will see a derelict area of Eastwood Park transformed into community allotments.
Community Council meetings are attended by the community councillors, local councillors, police representatives and other local figures. Members of the public are welcome to attend and observe. We try to reflect local views on subjects like school closures, local plans and new mobile phone mast locations – to do that we have to hear YOUR views.
If you are interested in helping influence what goes on in your local area, why not join us? Members of the public are welcome to attend.
