Portobello & Craigmillar Neighbourhood Partnership


Welcome 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.
