Update on LCCC activities during lockdown

You may see this content twice close together: it is also in a stick post (one that remains near the top of the website) as well as this normal post. This normal post will be pushed down and out of site as new normal posts are added.

Following guidance from the City of Edinburgh Council, Leith Central Community Council is not holding any public meetings during May and June.
LCCC’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) has been provisionally postponed until July 20th 2020.
As the majority of transport, planning and other developments have been postponed, and effective consultations are not possible via fully digital methods, the committee members have agreed to postpone all public meetings until further notice. Any decisions that cannot be postponed, and hence are made via email, video-meetings etc, will be ratified at a future, properly-convened public meeting.
We will continue to review the situation and work within the guidance outlined by our partners in the City of Edinburgh Council, the Scottish Government and the UK Government.
Leith Central Community Council intends to continue representing our communities as much as possible, and our website will continue to receive updates.
