Next Community Council Meeting 26 August 2019 at 7.15pm
in the Town Hall.

The Royal Burgh of Crail Community Council is an elected body created to ascertain, co-ordinate and express to local and public authorities the views of the Crail community. Community Councils are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland, they bridge the gap between local authorities and communities, and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent. A particular role of the Council is to encourage community participation and a sense of community spirit.
