I am writing to update you on the consultation process currently underway with regard to the Review of the Scheme. Following the preliminary period of consultation a draft Scheme has been produced. A summary of the consultation process and key findings are included in the attached report which was approved at today’s Council meeting (7 February 2019). This will be available to watch on the Council’s webcast site once archived (usually within 24 hours of conclusion of meeting).
The first statutory consultation period begins on 11 February 2019 and a public notice will be placed in the Evening News advertising this. Community councils and the public are invited to comment on the draft Scheme and complaints procedure which are attached as appendices to the report.
A copy of the proposed Scheme will be available for inspection by the public and community councillors at locality offices, libraries and https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk.
Any community council or member of public wishing to make comments on the draft proposals are invited to send these via the consultation hub link above, in writing to me at the address below or by email to email@example.com to arrive not later than 22 April 2019. Please forward details of the consultation to any groups or individuals in your area who may be interested in submitting comments. Community councils are also encouraged to add the consultation web links to their website.
The following drop-in sessions have been arranged, I will be in attendance on these dates to answer questions on the draft scheme:
Comments and feedback from this consultation will help to inform the revised Community Council Scheme.
If you have any further questions relating to the Review, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I am here on behalf of LHNCC and the community we serve and thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak on their behalf. Our CC encompasses a large area that includes Great Junction Street, Newkirkgate, Foot of The Walk and West side of Leith Walk to Number 92 all within the Leith Conservation Area and contribute to the ‘Heart of Leith’. We are passionate about the history, heritage, people and the Community we represent. We work closely with, and are adjacent to, LCCC and LLCC who are also here today representing their communities.
The mix, style and proportions are unique to this section of Leith Walk. Examples include The Arches in Manderston Street and the Art Deco Building that is at risk of being demolished in this Planning Application, and the majestic Columns that supported the Railway Bridge on the corner of Leith Walk and Jane Street.
