Current Status of WECC

WECC have had some internal difficulties over the last year or so. After several attempts at resolving these on our own, the Garioch Area Office of Aberdeenshire Council has now stepped in to provide support to WECC for a 3-month period (May to July), to allow us to resolve these difficulties while preserving the integrity of the Community Council. During this period of being in a Supported Status, we are operating as a Steering Group and have no statutory responsibilities like commenting on planning applications. Our meetings also cease to be open to the public until the period ends. Nevertheless, our other activities like the Bulletin, involvement in the Westhill Gala, and unveiling the anniversary Sculpture progress as usual. It is a time for us to focus on those things which need to change to make us more effective and to ensure that our operations are fully in line with the Scheme of Establishment. We would ask for everyone’s patience and continued support as we work through these issues.
