WHO WE ARE
Community councils were established after major reforms in the Local Government Act 1973 (Scotland). In England the parish councils often carry out the same functions. In Scotland community councils are ultimately responsible to regional or county councils.
Foulden, Mordington and Lamberton Community Council (FMLCC) has been active in the community since 1976. It is formed of elected volunteers from within Foulden, Mordington and Lamberton who meet formally to represent and discuss important issues that affect our community.
The objectives of the FMLCC include to :
• Ascertain, co-ordinate and reflect the views of the community
• Where appropriate, express these views to the local authority, to public authorities and other organisations
• Where possible take action in the interests of the community
• Promote the well-being of the community and to foster community spirit
• Be a means whereby the people of the area shall be able to voice their opinions on any matter affecting their lives and those of the community around them
There are two village halls and a recreational facility in the community council area. Click below for more information
After a period of abeyance, FMLCC restarted with new membership on the 28th April 2020. Eleven new councillors were appointed.
