Colinton Community Council members appointed

A new community council will be formed in Colinton following a successful nomination period.

Nine members have been elected to represent the views of local people.

The first meeting of the community council will be held in the near future, when the Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer will be appointed.

Following this, the community council will be able to make arrangements for future meetings.

Councillor Maureen Child, Convener of the Communities and Neighbourhoods Committee, said: “Congratulations to the new members of Colinton Community Council, I look forward to working with them to help promote positive developments and joint working in their community.

“Community councils are a great way for local people to meet and share ideas for improving the area, as well as raising awareness of the issues that matter with the Council and other relevant groups.”

The city’s community councils are involved in each of its 12 Neighbourhood Partnerships and work with the Council and other organisations to represent the views of local people.
