Highland

The Highland council area is covered by eight separate community council schemes, with each scheme covering the area of a former district of the Highland region. According to the Highland Council's concordat with community councils of November 2001, [ [http://www.highland.gov.uk/NR/rdonlyres/A484C106-CED0-416F-A2DD-971052540FC1/0/ccconcordat.pdf "Concordat between The Highland Council and Community Councils November 2001", Highland Council website, accessed 3 March 2008] ] the total number of community council areas is 152 and the former districts are areas used in a Highland Council decentralised management scheme developed in 1996, the same year that the statutory districts were abolished. That decentralisation scheme, however, was compromised by changes to ward boundaries in 1999 and was effectively scrapped when new wards and management structures were introduced in 2007.

Community council areas are listed below as in the schemes. The schemes fail however to cover the whole of the Highland council area. It appears that one scheme, covering the area of former district of Sutherland, has not been updated to take account of a change to the boundary between that district and the district of Caithness.

Current community council names may be determined by community council constitutions rather than schemes. Current names and contact details should be given on a Highland Council website. [ [http://www.highland.gov.uk/NR/rdonlyres/17A2E136-4582-484E-999C-514F9D88BA53/0/communitycouncillors.pdf "Community 03 March 2008", Highland Council website, accessed 3 March 2008] ]
