Local Concerns

The range of concerns that people bring to us is very wide and covers major issues such as planning and licensing applications, parking, anti- social behaviour (especially graffiti and litter), local health services, the maintenance of public parks, local transport policy, and HMOs (houses in multiple occupation).

These are discussed at public meetings, usually with an illustrative presentation, and then referred to the relevant authority along with a formal community council view. MCC works closely with local ward Councillors, our MSP, the Police and with officials of Edinburgh City Council.

Below are the types of issues raised with the Community Council. To notify us of your issue, please do get in touch.
