The next meeting of the Community Council will be held

on Thursday 20 September 2018

in Cramond Kirk Millennium Hall

Following our short break over the summer months you are invited to attend the next meeting of the Community Council.

The main topic for the evening will include an update on the planned Cammo Fields development. There have been further developments concerning the airport and the proposed flightpath for outbound flights to the east. Also an update on a proposed Traffic Restriction Order for Cramond Glebe Road (for which an outline drawing was received during our recess). Hear what the Community Council have been trying to do to improve bus services.

The Community Council meeting will also cover the regular business, including a Police report and reports from our local Councillors. Come along and ask them what they are doing to try to prevent a recurrence of the gridlock that occurred in July with roadworks on the Queensferry Road. What assurances are they seeking from officials that this will not happen again.

All Welcome
