The Belconnen area has many community groups, associations, organisations and clubs. All have specific functions by which they cater for differing needs in the community. Although there may sometimes seem to be similarities, even duplication, of purpose, each provides a valuable community service and greatly benefits Belconnen as a whole.

At the same time, this wide divergence of activity can limit collective effectiveness. The role of the Belconnen Community Council is to focus this local community effort into a cohesive, strong and active forum that is truly representative of the people of Belconnen.

The Constitution of the Belconnen Community Council was lodged with the Office of Regulatory Services in July 2015. It was endorsed by a majority vote at a Special General Meeting in May 2015.

It replaced a version endorsed in 2014.
