Community Council

The Community Council represents the local community to large organisations including Scottish Borders Council, Police Scotland, NHS Borders etc. We work hard to represent the area of Cockburnspath & Cove, to consult with local residents and pass their views onto public sector organisations including Scottish Borders Council, Police Scotland, NHS Borders etc.

We liaise with local and national organisations to ensure that Cockburnspath and Cove is a great place to live, work and visit. All Community Council meetings are open and welcome to members of the public to attend. Meetings are held usually on the second Wednesday of every month (except July). If you would like to raise any matters please feel free to come along or speak to our Community Councillors.

The size of each community council varies, some are as small as five and others as large as 18 people.Community councils in the Scottish Borders are governed by the Scottish Borders Scheme for Community Councils.
