6 Priorities set to make Leith safer

Recently people attending the fourth public meeting of the Feeling Safe Community Forum came up with 6 priorities to make Leith a safer place.

The priorities, as selected by members of the Leith community are;

  • Leith Links area – Address anti social behaviour caused by persons drinking alcohol.
  • All Leith Primary schools – Run a safe parking initiative at drop off & pick up times.
  • Kirkgate area – Address anti social behaviour caused by persons drinking alcohol.
  • Leith Walk – Address anti social & intimidating behaviour by beggars.
  • All Leith & Leith Walk area – Run a Halloween bonfire & firework initiative to address unsafe practices & anti social behaviour.
  • Leith Walk –  Run a road traffic initiative to address speeding motorists and cyclists on pavements.

Local Police & Council Officers will now act upon these six priorities over the next three months.  An update to the Community Councils will be provided monthly as work progresses.
