Posted on: March 14th, 2016
Community engagement by Portobello Community Council has been rated as excellent by the Scottish Community Development Centre, “representing an outstanding standard of performance and exemplifying excellent practice”.

Following a detailed analysis of community engagement activities, the SCDC found that Portobello Community Council was “performing to a standard which is the model of its type” and recommended that it be replicated by community councils and other statutory and voluntary sector organisations across Scotland.

The SCDC report said: “Through conducting such strong engagement, PCC ensures that the local community has an opportunity to have their voice heard in decisions which directly impact on their lives.

“The excellent assessment, SCDC concluded, was largely due to the skills, knowledge, energy and enthusiasm of the PCC’s members and their commitment to making local decision making and planning as transparent and accountable as possible for local people.”
