COMPOSITION OF COMMUNITY COUNCILS

All community councils have a base number of seven elected Community Councillors, plus one Community Councillor for every one thousand of the population up to five thousand, then one Community Councillor thereafter for every two thousand of the population

Example
A community council with 7000 of a population, 7 community councillors + 5 + 1 = 13 elected Community Councillors

    Members of community councils are elected by the local community. They have this in common with local authority councillors, and Members of the Holyrood and Westminster Parliaments.  Even if, due to a shortage of nominations, your "seat" was uncontested, and no actual election took place, your Constitution provides for nomination and election. If properly nominated, by two local residents who are on the Electoral Register, you are as much elected as would be the case in a contested election.
