Community Councils


The primary purpose of a community council is to act as a voice for its local area.

Councillors whose wards fall wholly or partly within the geographical area of a Midlothian community council are as deemed 'ex-officio' members of the community council. 'Ex-officio' members have no voting rights on a community council.

There are 16 community councils in Midlothian whose contact and website details can be found in the folders below.

Please note that Midlothian Council is not responsible for the content of the individual community council website content.
