What we do
The Community Council is a stautory authority made up of local volounteers seeking to represent the views of residents, businesses and charities who live and work in the Leith Central area.
Leith Central Community Council seeks to work with The City of Edinburgh Council and all levels of government to ensure the views of the people in the area are heard.
This may include matters regarding transport, housing, planning, environment, crime and many other policy areas.
Members are usually elected every 3 or 4 years, but individuals who demonstrate a commitment or have a local knowledge or expertise can be co-opted between elections. If you would like to become a member then please contact us at secretary (at) leithcentralcc.co.uk.
The Community Council is made up of local people who have the support of at least two of their neighbours and are willing to regularly attend the monthly meetings. If you would like to become a Community Council member, you can find more information here.
In addition local groups can be co-opted onto the council.
