Nominations open for Gorgie Dalry Community Council
People are being sought to help represent the views of those living in Gorgie and Dalry.
Nominations are now open for places on Gorgie Dalry Community Council, which is holding an interim election to fill vacancies for 10 members.
Community council members play an important role in local democracy by conveying the interests of residents to the Council and other organisations.
Community Councils are represented on each of the 12 Neighbourhood Partnerships established across the city. The Council, police, health and voluntary sector work together within the partnerships to enhance the quality of life in local neighbourhoods.
Members of the public, who must be over 16 years of age and on the electoral roll for the area, are being sought to join Gorgie Dalry Community Council.
Those interested can join by filling out a nomination form by 29 February. Nomination forms and further details can be obtained by contacting the returning officer, visiting the Council website or calling 0131 529 3402.
Councillor Maureen Child, Convener of the Communities and Neighbourhoods Committee, said: “Community councils are a great way for people to get involved in improving their local area, as well as meeting a range of residents and neighbourhood groups.
“I would urge anyone living in the Gorgie and Dalry area who is interested to get in touch and see how they can make a difference to the community.”
