South East Locality Committee news

(adapted from an email to relevant community councils from Cllrs Mandy Watt and Melanie Main)

The councillors aim to regularly email updates to CCs within South East Locality, 'to give a heads up about business items for each meeting and provide information in a less formal way than simply sending the committee papers'.

The first meeting of the South East Locality Committee (SELC) was held on Wednesday 21st February at 2pm in the City Chambers. 

Councillor Mandy Watt was elected Convener and Councillor Melanie Main was elected Vice-Convener.  The meeting received updates on the progress of the Locality Improvement Plans, the Edinburgh Partnership’s community planning governance review, and Councillor Nick Cook’s Motion on safety in Greenbank Lane. Councillors agreed some of the business for the next meeting, mostly around how the committee will run, i.e. meeting dates, times and venues, a report on annual rotation of Conveners and Vice-Conveners, and a report to kick off the development of the Community Engagement Strategy for the SELC.

Next meeting Monday 23 April 6:30pm Dean of Guild Room, City Chambers

The meeting is public – anyone can attend and watch from the public gallery.  Any constituted group can send a deputation to speak on any item of business.

The committee will aim to set its April agenda and make information available in time for community councils to discuss is at their March or April meeting. It has asked for community council nominees to attend meetings, sot hat meetings are inclusive

Locality Committee Governance

Locality Committees have been set up as decision-making Council Committees to conduct Council business only, and are not part of the Community Planning Partnership – that’s the work of the Edinburgh Partnership.  The principles, membership, remit and terms of reference set by the Council in November 2017 are below.

 

City Centre Neighbourhood Partnership

The City Centre Neighbourhood Partnership is an advisory committee to the City of Edinburgh Council. The Partnership has a statuary responsibility to make sure that communities are engaged in decisions on services.

The City Centre Neighbourhood Partnership is part of  the South East locality. Each of the 12 Neighbourhood Partnerships in Edinburgh has been managing a Local Community Plan which has run from 2014 to 2017.

These have now evolved into Locality Improvement Plans for 2017 to 2023.

The Neighbourhood Partnership has Community Grants which it can award to projects within its area. The fund can provide grants of up to £5000 to voluntary and community groups.  Continue reading
