Forfar and Monifieth Community Councils have now been re-established - which means all 25 community councils in Angus are operating

Monifieth required a minimum of seven nominees and attracted nine, while the Royal Burgh of Forfar required nine nominees and gained 12.

All nominated candidates were duly elected to serve on their community councils.

Both areas had fallen short of the required number of nominations during an extended nomination period in September and October last year.

But petitions prompted arrangements to re-establish community councils for both areas.

The inaugural meeting of Monifieth Community Council will be held on Thursday, April 14, at 7pm in the Community Centre Cabin, Union Street, Monifieth.

The inaugural meeting of the Community Council will be held on Thursday, April 21, at 7pm in the Town & County Hall, Forfar.

Members of the public are welcome at both meetings
