Portobello & Craigmillar Neighbourhood Partnership

landing_portobello.jpgWelcome to the Portobello & Craigmillar Neighbourhood Partnership home page. We are ideally placed, with a castle, the seaside and plenty of parks and green space. We are keen to maintain and improve these attractions.

In these pages you can find out what the Neighbourhood Partnership does and how you can get involved. There are links to the Partnership's priorities and the community plan. If you feel we've missed anything, or if you can't find out what you want to know, please contact us and we'll do our best to help you.  The convenor is Councillor Mike Bridgman.  

There is a new Craigmillar Community Council -  the inaugural meeting will be on 21 February at 7.30 in the White House.

Over 80 stakeholders attended a Help Shape the Future - Development of North East Locality Improvement Plan on 17 November at Meadowbank, to help determine the Locality's priorities for the next 5 years.  See the slide presentation here .
