Nominations open for Craiglockhart Community Council
Craiglockhart Community Council is seeking nominations to fill vacancies for seven elected members.
Members of the public who are interested must fill out a nomination form by 7 March. Nominees must be over 16 years of age and on the electoral roll for the area.
Councillor Maureen Child, Convener of the Communities and Neighbourhoods Committee, said: “Community councils play such an important role in local democracy, allowing residents to make their opinions heard to the Council and other organisations.
“Anyone interested in making a difference in the Craiglockhart community should consider signing up for the opportunity to meet new people and get involved in improving their local area.”
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.
