Your Community Council – Getting Involved

The current Westhill and Elrick Community Council were elected in 2020.   All Community Councils require to be re-elected every 3 years so an election is being held for Westhill and Elrick in May this year. There are 17 vacancies.

If you care about your community and want to make it a better place to live, this is the role for you!

The main role of the Community Council is to let Aberdeenshire Council and other public bodies know the view of their community. We also organise many community improvement activities, like litter picking, Xmas lights, Westhill Bulletin, Westhill Orbital Trail, hanging baskets & flower tubs

The self-nomination form can be downloaded from link below or by emailing the WECC secretary at

Paper copies can be picked up from Westhill Library or from Storie Cruden & Simpson at the Shopping Centre.

The form shows 3 options for eligibility criteria, tick the most appropriate one. For most people it will be the first one (I am on the Electoral Register and I reside in the area of the Community Council).  The form asks for your electoral number, but this can be left blank if not known.

Nomination forms need to be received by 18th May 2023.They should be emailed to or posted to Alison Cumming, Garioch Area Office, Gordon House, Inverurie, AB51 3WA 

If there is more than 17 nomination forms received, a public ballot will be held on Monday 29th May in Ashdale Hall, Westhill from 6pm to 8pm.   The ballot will be advertised in the press and at

Planned Improvements to Denman Park / Arnhall Moss Community Survey- Your Chance to Influence

Your Community Council has been invited to submit a bid to Aberdeenshire Council to fund improvements to the path network and amenities in Denman Park / Arnhall Moss; for a project that will “demonstrate a significant and transformational impact to the place”.

The vision is of a woodland park where all members of the community choose to spend time; whether that’s alone with nature, socialising, exercising, and/or commuting between one of the business parks and the town centre.

In this first phase, we are planning to add some 770m of new paths in Denman Park [illustrated below], resurface another 285m, and add two new bridges [one a replacement]. In Arnhall Moss we plan to widen 100m so that most routes there are up to a standard that will be suitable for all users of all abilities.

Together, we would like to get a better understanding of how the community currently uses Denman Park / Arnhall Moss and the likely impact such an investment would make.

Please click on the link to take the survey:  It should take no more than 5-10 minutes.

The survey will remain open until 12th February 2023.

Please also encourage others to respond. Thank you.
