Diversity in Community Councils’ work

(Adapted from a post on Tower Wharf Residents’ Association‘s website)

Community Council elections start on Monday, 5th September. Edinburgh and Lothians Regional Equality Council (ELREC) has organised a workshop on Wednesday, 7th September (6pm to 8:30pm) followed by drop-sessions to encourage members of Edinburgh’s ethnic population to become involved with their local community councils. Community Councils are for everyone and Leith Central CC would welcome new applications to become a CC for our area. Nominations open on Monday, 5th September and forms can be obtained from the returning officer, Cllr Lewis Richie (email lewis.ritchie@edinburgh.gov.uk)  or downloaded from Edinburgh Council’s website from next week.
