Colvend and Southwick Community Council

Colvend and Southwick Community Council as with all the other Community Councils plays an important role in allowing members of the community to raise a variety of issues.  The Dumfries & Galloway website has a comprehensive overview of the structure and duties of Community Councils.  Click the link here to go to their Community Councils' page. 

If you have a concern about local services or wish to know about the issues facing the community come along to a meeting. 

The Colvend & Southwick Community Council normally meets the first Thursday of each month in Colvend Public Hall at 7.00pm with the exception of January and August when there is not a meeting.  Occasionally this can vary but you should find the date of the next meeting on the front page of this website or refer to the last minutes below.

Members of the public are always welcome to attend Community Council meetings - just turn up.
