Want to ensure your voice is heard by Edinburgh Councillors, MSPs and MPs? Want to join the best hyperlocal-democratic body in Leith Central’s area? Then nominate a representative to Leith Central Community Council.
Up to 8 local organisations can be represented on Leith Central CC. Read on for how it’s done!
Nominated representatives may be appointed by local interest groups registered with Edinburgh Council. The first appointments shall be made at a joint meeting of the interest groups organised by the Returning Officer in accordance with the procedures set out in Schedule 2 of Edinburgh’s Community Council arrangements.
Nominated representatives shall cease to be members of the community council if they cease to be a member of the nominating interest group.
Nominated representatives are appointed to represent the interests of their group on the community council and to reflect the views of the community through the community council. If a CC member has any private and/or personal interests in a matter for the community council, they have a duty to declare this and if deemed necessary by other members, withdraw from discussions and the decision making process with regard to that matter.
