Welcome to the web presence of the Braeside and Mannofield Community Council.
Community Councils are statutory bodies, set up by an Act of Parliament. Their term of office is 3 years and they receive an annual grant from the City Council.
They have no executive powers although being close to and part of the local community they play a vital role in representing the views of the community to local authorities and other public bodies.
Anyone who lives within the Community Council area and whose name is on the electoral roll can be nominated or apply to become a Community Councillor.
There are also places for young people aged 16 and 17 years and other co-options are allowed.
The Braeside and Mannofield Community Council has an upper limit of 12 members.
For full information about Community Councils download the Aberdeen City Council Handbook from the document archive.

Inspector Ian McKinnon says, "Over the coming month we will be continuing our focus on crime patrols in areas affected by break-ins or car crime.
Members of the public continued to be of great assistance to us in December by reporting
suspicious activity at the time it was occurring, thereby giving us the best chance of recovering
property and detaining suspects.
As an aside, it is a good idea to review your home security every so often - think about how you
would get into your house or garage if you were locked out. If the answer is "I can't get in" then
you are in a good place (though not so good if you were actually locked out).  If you see weakness somewhere, there are usually simple remedies.
As ever, we are always appreciative of calls from members of the public reporting suspicious
activity, and would encourage you to trust your instincts in this regard."


The local policing team are based at Whinhill and request that if any suspicious activity is seen they are contacted, either as an emergency on 999 or on the Police Scotland Service Centre at 101.
