Welcome to Murieston Community Council

Community Councils

West Lothian Council is required by law to have a Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils in its area. However, community councils are not part of the Council’s structure – they are independent bodies who run their own affairs and elect their own members. Find out more at West Lothian Council website.

Murieston Community Council

Currently 12 Murieston Community Councillors and 2 elected West Lothian Councillors meet on a monthly basis and all residents have the opportunity to attend any of these meetings. Please inform us of your attendance.

Never has there been greater interest in the Murieston Community Council with recent planning events having such an impact on local residents. Is it time for you to step forward and take a more active role? We have a talented team but we are keen to bring in additional talent to secure the future impact of the Murieston Community Council. Never has there been a better time to get involved. You can give as much or as little of your time as you wish and get involved in all aspects of community life in Murieston.
