Pollokshields is divided into smaller areas, and ideally each of those areas would have two community councillors, but can have up to three if there is capacity in other areas. At the moment we have spaces across all of those areas and we hope people living in Pollokshields will consider becoming Community Councillors.
Some info on the role of Community Councils can be found here.
The Council have provided a comprehensive portal to accessing guidance information relating to Community Councils.
The Council have issued official Guidance for Community Councils.
The Council have also issued the Scheme of Establishment of Community Councils.
