Diversity in Community Councils’ work

(Adapted from a post on Tower Wharf Residents’ Association‘s website)
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-sessions to encourage members of Edinburgh’s ethnic population to become involved with their local community councils.

Community Councils are for everyone, and New Town & Broughton 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 Karen Doran (email karen.doran@edinburgh.gov.uk)  or downloaded from Edinburgh Council’s website from next week.
