Leith Central Community Council provides a forum for local people to engage with and work for their local community. It meets the third Monday of every month. These meetings are usually public, so you are very welcome to attend and engage.
Please rest assured that LCCC members continue to do their best to represent our area’s interests during these difficult times: a lot of work is going on in the background. It will continue to be recorded in our minutes, available at https://leithcentralcc.co.uk/reports.
Following guidance from the City of Edinburgh Council, Leith Central Community Council has not recently held since May 2020. LCCC continues to review the coronavirus/lockdown situation, and to work within the guidance outlined by our partners in the City of Edinburgh Council, the Scottish Government and the UK Government.
LCCC intends to continue representing our communities as much as possible, and our website will continue to receive updates.
If you have any questions about LCCC or related issues, please contact us using the email addresses below:
Please note this is from the Trams to Newhaven team. LCCC will respond in due course – watch this space.
From Tuesday 13 April the project will commence the Traffic Regulation Order public consultation process (TRO). A TRO details the nature and extent of how our roads are used and managed such as road closures, restrictions on turning movements and the position of parking and loading spaces.
The purpose of the TRO process is to invite comment and objections on the parking and loading arrangements being proposed and any changes to moving traffic requirements and entry/exit from streets. Only measures presented within the traffic order may be objected to.
We try our best to both broadly represent the views of our constituents and ensure any proposed development meets current guidelines, particularly as parts of our ward falls either into either the Leith, Pilrig, Victoria Park or New Town conservation areas.
For transparency, we tend to publish our full comment once the application process closes. These can be found attached to meeting agendas at the relevant date.
Here are two of our recent responses to proposals in Pilrig:
54 Rosslyn Crescent (change from bowling green to high-density residential)

LeithChooses is holding a feedback night on Tuesday 9 March (6pm) and running an online questionnaire. Details follow:
LeithChooses 2021 Feedback Night, 9 March 6pm.
The LeithChooses Steering Group is always looking for feedback from the community, after each participatory budgeting event.
You are warmly invited to attend a ‘Feedback Night’ meeting, online. This will be on Tuesday 9th March at 6pm.
Each year, LeithChooses has found that although not many people can make it to the Feedback night, those that DO come always provide a tremendously valuable input. As this year has been so different, LeithChooses would especially like to hear from you about what you feel went well – and what didn’t – at LeithChooses 2021.
Sadly, there can be no cups of tea or Tunnocks tea cakes, but LeithChooses hope we can have an informal discussion and listen to your views. Do join!
LeithChooses would like to glean your individual thoughts on the £eith Chooses 2021 experience through a questionnaire.
LeithChooses would appreciate if you would complete this questionnaire, and share it with anyone who has a view on the process.
Please click here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/leithch2021. It will be live for one month. LeithChooses is keen to refine and improve what it does so your thoughts are most welcome; LeithChooses does listen carefully!
Please do not hesitate to contact Caroline Lamond (Caroline.Lamond@edinburgh.gov.uk) if you have any questions about the feedback night or the survey; Caroline is happy to help.
