Leith Central Community Council provides a forum for local people to engage with and work for their local community. The meetings are on the third Monday of every month and these meetings are public, so you are very welcome to attend and engage with what is happening in your local area.

Agendas and minutes are added to the Meetings page as they become available.

Update on LCCC activities during lockdown

Following guidance from the City of Edinburgh Council, Leith Central Community Council did not holding public meetings from May to August.

As the majority of transport, planning and other developments were postponed, and effective consultations were not possible via fully digital methods, the committee members agreed to postpone public meetings until further notice. Any decisions that could not be postponed, and hence werre made via email, video-meetings etc, will be ratified at future, properly-convened public meetings.

LCCC continues 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.

LCCC intends to continue representing our communities as much as possible, and our website will continue to receive updates.

new LCCC members

Following their nomination for Leith Central Community Council, the Returning Officer, Cllr Angela Blacklock, has declared the following candidates elected to Leith Central Community Council. According to the current Scheme for Community Councils, it was not necessary to hold a contested election, as there have been fewer candidates than available places.

  • Jeremy Darot
  • Roberto Colasuonno
  • Stanley Eadie
  • Lorraine Moore
  • Michael Pisanek
  • Katherine Chisholm

Following this interim election process, brought about by a number of resignations and one sad death, Leith Central Community Council is now once again fully quorate with a voting membership of 14. This is expected to rise to 15, once the paperwork for one of the local interest groups that provide a ‘nominated representative’ has been completed.
