A thriving village with businesses and community groups, Nethy Bridge also has an active Community Council
Nethy Bridge & Vicinity Community Council
RSPB and Nethy Bridge 60-year vision for Abernethy
Please spend some time watching the following presentation by Uwe Stoneman, Senior Site Manager with the RSPB at Forest Lodge.
The presentation was made during our most recent Community Council meeting and marks the launch of a 60-year vision currently being developed between the RSPB and the community through the Community Council to envisage and then enact what we want the reserve to look like in 60 years.
After watching, please let us know what your thoughts are, and any suggestions will be most welcome. Not all will be possible, but it is important that we all work together for the better of Abernethy, most of us will not be here to see the results in six decades but it will be interesting to see the progress being made as the years roll by.

Community Councils were first established in Scotland following the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973. Thereafter, the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1994, which produced the current system of unitary Local Authorities, made provision for the continuation of Community Councils
The Highland Council, in accordance with the terms of Section 22 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1994 adopted a Scheme for Establishment of Community Councils within The Highland Council area. Nethy Bridge and Vicinity Community Council is part of that Scheme and governed by its Constitution.
The statutory purposes of Community Councils established under this Scheme are set out in Section 51 (2) of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, as follows:
“In addition to any other purpose which a Community Council may pursue, the general purpose of a Community Council shall be to ascertain, co-ordinate and express to the local authorities for its area, and to public authorities, the views of the community which it represents, in relation to matters for which those authorities are responsible, and to take such action in the interests of that community as appears to it to be expedient and practicable”
The Community Council meet at 7.30pm every first Thursday in the month at the Nethy Bridge Community Centre, Dell Road.
There are no meetings in July and August each year.
