Your Community Council

Dollar Community Council has been around since 1891 and has always been run by members of the community. All elected members are volunteers and provide a link between the Community and the Members and Officers of Clackmannanshire Council.

As well as this we liaise with other Community Councils in Clackmannanshire and are the first point of contact for statutory bodies such as Police Scotland and Forth Valley Health Board. Formally we are one of a number of statutory consultees on planning matters pertinent to the boundaries of the Community Council.

In reality the role of the Community Council is far wider reaching within the town. It funds and facilitates a number of community activities, including:

  • Dollar News
  • Dollar Events
  • Burnside Maintaintence

Dollar Community Council meets at 7.30pm on the 3rd Monday of the month.

These meeting are open to all members of the Dollar community.

Your input is very welcome and really appreciated.
