This year, nominations are open for the two community representative positions on the Decision Making Panel. One representative is from Botriphnie (Drummuir area) and one from Boharm (Mulben area). Community representatives must live in the are they wish to represent and have two nominees who also live in that area. They will typically be asked to assess applications and attend decision making meetings twice yearly and will sit for three years before standing down. Forms are available on the downloads page and hard copies are available on request. The deadline for nomination forms to reach REAP is 15th September 2018. If there are multiple nominations, elections will be held on 15th October in Drummuir Hall and 16th October in Mulben Hall.
