Barrhead Community Council

Barrhead Community Council meets in the Council Offices on Main Street, Barrhead, on the first Thursday of each month at 7.00pm. Meetings are open to the public and you are welcome to attend.





In accordance with the Clause 5.13 of the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils (amended 2015), as the number of elected community council members has fallen below half of the total maximum number of seats on the community council, notice is hereby given that an interim election will be held in respect of all vacant seats.

Accordingly, East Renfrewshire Council is making a call for nominations for membership of Barrhead Community Council

Available membership vacancies within the Community Council neighbourhood areas are listed below:-

Arthurlie & Springhill               - 1 vacancies

Auchenback                            - 4 vacancies

Boylestone                              - 4 vacancies

Dunterlie & Grahamston Park - 1 vacancy

Persons wishing to stand for election must be aged 16 years or over and be named on the electoral register. The proposer and seconder must also meet these eligibility requirements.

In addition to the foregoing eligibility requirements, the candidate, proposer and seconder must all stay in the relevant neighbourhood area. Self-nomination is not permitted.

As part of the nomination process candidates are required to submit a personal statement of up to a maximum of 250 words in support of their nomination. Copies of all nomination statements will be published.

To stand as a candidate, a valid nomination form must be submitted to "Community Council Elections, Council Headquarters, Eastwood Park, Giffnock, G46 6UG". The deadline for the receipt of completed nomination forms is 4.45pm on Wednesday 1st November 2017.

Should the number of validly nominated candidates exceed the number of vacancies in any or all of the neighbourhood areas, a poll shall be held in those neighbourhood areas.

Should the number of validly nominated candidates not exceed the number of vacancies in any or all of the neighbourhood areas, the said candidates will be declared to be elected with immediate effect and no poll shall be held.
