Welcome to the Craigleith and Blackhall Community Council. We are residents that care about our community and work to make it a better place to live. We are always keen to hear from residents about local issues and concerns. The community council is a voluntary organisation set up by statute by Edinburgh City Council and run by local residents to act on behalf of its area. As the most local tier of elected representation, your Craigleith and Blackhall Community Council plays an important role in local democracy.
