You are invited to the Community Council Joint Meeting on Thursday 24 April at 7.00 pm in the Council Headquarters, Waverley Court, 4 East Market Street, Edinburgh. Tea and coffee will be available from 6.30 pm.

The main focus of the evening will be partnership working and the developing role of community councils. Russell Bain who has responsibility for community planning with the Scottish Government will give a presentation on recent developments relating to community councils in Scotland.

Community councils have a key role in representing community interests on Neighbourhood Partnerships. There will be opportunities at the meeting to share good practice and consider if any changes are required to the Scheme for Community Councils to enable CCs to operate efficiently and transparently.

An agenda will be issued prior to the meeting and if you have any comments about the proposed topic, please do not hesitate to get back in touch.

It would assist greatly if you could reply to the secretary by 18th April.
