The Community Council is a forum for local opinion and democratic action. It is the lowest tier of Scottish local government, elected by postal ballot by all on the electoral register every three years. It is consulted by Stirling Council on all planning and licensing applications in the area, and makes representations to public and private agencies on all major economic, housing, transport, environmental, policing and social issues affecting the locale.

The Council is elected in two wards, the Doune ward (8 members) and the Deanston ward (3 members). Two further seats are reserved for youth members from Doune and Deanston students attending High School, and these two seats are currently vacant, so, if you think your views and those of your peers are not being represented, please do get in touch with us.

Community counsellors stand as individuals and are debarred from standing for political parties or religious interests. They receive no financial allowances and the annual budget of the K.C.C. is approximately £600.00. K.C.C. meetings are open to the public and are held on the 2nd Monday of each month (excluding July and August). The January and June meetings are held at Deanston Primary School, the others are in the committee room at the Muir Hall. We start at 19.45.

If you have issues you want to raise with the K.C.C. please do not hesitate to make contact through the secretary Alison McAlpine on email This email address is being protected from spambots.
