Welcome to the joint website of PNCC & PSCC where you will find information about the Prestwick Community, including links to local services, the Scottish Government, South Ayrshire Council, NHS and updates on our meetings and community activities.
With the lifting of restrictions, both community councils are pleased to announce the return of formal face to face meetings at which members of the public are welcome to join. We are delighted to be back and look forward to welcoming you all again. Meetings will be held in accordance with Government guidelines, and face coverings/masks must be worn when attending. Should restrictions be re-imposed, the meetings could be subject to change.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, both community councils had agreed to join together to form one Prestwick community council, and we shall continue with the formal process for this, including public consultation. We will hold a public meeting to discuss this with Prestwick Residents in the 65 Club on Tuesday 26th October.
