Cameron Community Council is an independent, statutory, public body run by volunteers.
They, the councillors, must comply with legal requirements as stated by Local and National Authority, and are publicly accountable. They have the authority, vested in legislation, to undertake any activity in the interest of their community that they consider necessary - a general power of competence - as well as coordinating and expressing the views of their community to any other authority.

All community councillors give of their time freely and without remuneration.

Community Councils are consulted on planning issues and are recognised by other public
bodies as being representative of their local community.

Community Councillors are democratically elected.

As well as providing statutory consultative functions community councils provide important community involvement in local projects and social events.

Community Councils form a focal point for the views of the local community.

Many Community Councils, including Cameron have now gone beyond their original remit and are actively involved in issues of environment, tourism and promotion of local business.
