Share your views at drop-in event on November 25

Tell the Council about your aspirations for the local area.

The City of Edinburgh Council is hosting a drop-in event at the Rosebery Hall in South Queensferry town centre this Friday, November 25, from 10 am. to noon. No need to book, just turn up and share your views.

Officers are keen to establish develop new, community priorities leading up to 2022.

Partnership development officer Jim Conner tells us: “Locality Improvement Plans are to be established in each locality across the city which will help identify where key partners need to prioritise service and invest in joint resources to make a positive difference to communities. With the new North West Locality stretching from South Queensferry through to Trinity, up to Murrayfield and back along to the Airport, it is clear that service needs will be very different and the Locality Improvement Plan should reflect this.

“As a result the above events will identify specific themes: Community Safety, Place, Children & Young people, Health & Social Care and Employment, all of which feature to some extent in Local Community Plans and partnership working. The next stage of this process will involve gathering the thoughts from local community groups and representatives around how these themes; these will be developed in the coming months and years. Therefore we would like to invite you to a focused group session. This session will give you the opportunity to discuss and identify a range of statements. These statements will then serve as the foundation for the wider locality engagement/consultation when the wider community will be able to prioritise their aspirations for each theme.”
