Welcome to Portobello Community Council.
The Community Council is here to represent the residents & traders of Portobello. We try to take the majority view about local issues, so please help us to get it right by telling us what you think. We can only deal with what we know about. If you have concerns about a local issue, from uneven pavements to graffiti to Edinburgh's policies on Transport, Planning, Environment or any other matter, contact us or, better still, come to a meeting and tell us about it.
Portobello Community Council was formed in 1982 and is entitled to fifteen elected members and fifteen members from local interest groups, who can nominate one of their number to represent them. Members serve for three years.
The Community Council works closely with groups such as Portobello Amenity Society and has formed several sub committees to take forward various ideas and suggestions from Community Council members and members of the public. These include Joppa Tennis Club, a group looking at traffic issues in Portobello, and a group looking at the use of Portobello Town Hall.
Our meetings are held on the last Monday of the month, except July and December, at 7.30pm in the Baptist Church Hall, 185 Portobello High Street. Visitors are welcome and there is disabled access. Please check out our forthcoming Agenda.
