Community Councils are Statutory Consultees. This is automatic for planning applications of 50 houses or more.

A Community Council can request to be Statutory Consultee for any planning application by requesting this with the case officer up to 7 days after publication in the Weekly List.

EACC belongs to every Edinburgh Community Council

Its aim is to provide support, advise and give a collective voice for community councils when facing the challenges community councillors encounter on an almost daily basis. No one person is more important than any other. All community councils have a voice on the EACC!!
