Community Council elections start on Monday, 5th September. Edinburgh and Lothians Regional Equality Council (ELREC) has organised a workshop on Wednesday, 7th September (6pm to 8:30pm) followed by drop-in sessions to encourage members of Edinburgh’s ethnic population to become involved with their local community councils.
Community Councils are for everyone, and Leith Harbour & Newhaven CC would welcome new applications to become a CC member for our area. Nominations open on Monday, 5th September and forms can be obtained from the returning officer, Cllr Adam McVey (email firstname.lastname@example.org) or downloaded from Edinburgh Council’s website from next week.
Black and minority ethnic (BME) residents living in Edinburgh & the Lothians, and current community council members, are invited to
Celebrating Diversity in Community Councils.
Thursday, 11 August 2016, 6.00pm – 8.30pm
Royston Wardieburn Community Centre, 11 Pilton Drive North, Edinburgh EH5 1NF
The key aim of the event is to increase the representation of BME communities in community councils. It is hosted jointly by Edinburgh & Lothians Regional Equality Council (ELREC) project and Granton & District Community Council.
This could be your opportunity to join a thriving group of local representatives and have a direct influence on local matters.
There are elections for all Edinburgh community councils this autumn. All current members will stand down – they are of course eligible for re-election.
