This website is intended for to keep the Cameron community informed about the activities of the Cameron Community Council as well as providing information about local events.
Community Councils are elected every four years and are made up of local people who have an interest in their community.
The primary purpose of a Community Council in Scotland is to gather the views of the local community on issues that affect the people who live there, and to present these views to the relevant local authority or public body. In this way, Community Councils help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent.
The local authority (Fife Council) also has a duty to consult Community Councils on how local services are delivered and other issues affecting the community. Sometimes other public bodies, such as the Scottish Government, will also consult Community Councils on issues that may affect their local communities.
Community Councils can also encourage community participation and a sense of community spirit by taking action and supporting activities that bring local people together.

Members of the public are welcome to attend community council meetings and may speak when invited to do so. This is a good opportunity for people in the Cameron area, and surrounding areas, to present their concerns about the service in our rural community.
