Services roadshow comes to you, in Ratho Station and Newbridge

The City of Edinburgh Council is hosting roadshows in Ratho Station and Newbridge tomorrow, 26 February, offering residents a chance to ask questions, receive information and raise concerns about a wide range of local services.

Council Community Safety officers will be joined by Safer Neighbourhood Police, Fire and Rescue Service, and Environmental Wardens and Housing and Regeneration Staff.The roadshow is the latest in a series of similar initiatives in the West of Edinburgh, which aim to keep residents up to date on the services that matter to them.

If you turn up on the day, you will be able to:

* Speak to Council officers about environment or housing issues
* Speak to Safer Neighbourhood Police and Council officers about community safety issues
* Find out more about the impact of welfare reform on your housing benefit, and raise any concerns about how changes might affect your household
* Seek fire safety advice
* Update your contact details with Council staff

To take part in Ratho Station, head to Scotmid supermarket, Hillwood Road, between 10am - 12pm, and 1pm - 3pm.

To take part in Newbridge, head to the cross roads of Bridge Street and Old Liston Road between 10am - 12pm, and 1pm - 3pm.

Housing and Community Safety Leader, Cllr Cammy Day, said: "I know how important it is to the residents of West Edinburgh that they get the support and engagement they need from Council officers, and this roadshow gives locals a chance to do that from the convenience of their own high street. I'd urge anyone with queries or concerns about any local services, from housing to neighbourhood safety, to come along and speak to one of the team."

Chief Inspector Murray Dykes, of Lothian and Borders Police, said: "These roadshows are a great chance for us to meet people informally and for them to raise concerns in a relaxed atmosphere. We're keen to hear from local residents about the issues that matter to them, and would encourage people to come along and have a word with us at the roadshows.

"Our policing priorities are driven by the local community so it's important we stay in contact to ensure we're responding to the needs of local residents."
