Mass resignation of Old Town Community Council

It’s saddening to learn of this.

From the news release:

Having become so exasperated with the disregard shown by the City of Edinburgh Council towards the local community, and the lack of support and encouragement for community councils in general, the majority of OTCC members have now taken this decision to resign. Due to community disaffection and lack of promotion by the Council for community council elections, without so much as a mention on the Council’s homepage, only one new member was recently co-opted onto the OTCC, constituting an insufficient number in order to sustain the OTCC.

Here is the full text of this news release and the accompanying Caltongate final appeal document.
