Leith Links Community Council consists of local people and interest groups who represent their community. Local views are put forward by the community council to the local authority and other organisations such as Scottish government, NHS Lothian and the police.
Community representation is done by various methods such as communication with the local authority by highlighting issues; meeting public officials; holding public meetings; carrying out surveys; meeting with other community councils; and arranging events to promote Community Council interests and issues.
The local authority has a duty to consult and inform the Community Council on services, licensing and other issues that affect their neighbourhood. A Community Council has a statutory right to be consulted on local planning.
A full meeting of the Community Council is held on the last Monday of every month (except July & December) at 7:00pm in the Persevere Room at Leith Community Education Centre.
These are public meetings.
The agenda for each meeting will be published at least seven days in advance.
The papers for each meeting are displayed in the section of this website called ‘our library’.
At each meeting there is an opportunity for members of the community to raise issues of concern, ask any questions etc.
The meetings are held on the last Monday of every month (except July & December) and these meetings are public, so you are very welcome to attend and engage with what is happening in your local area.
