P & C Local Community Plan
Welcome to the new Portobello and Craigmillar Local Community
Plan 2014-17. This is the third plan since Neighbourhood
Partnerships (NPs) were established in 2007.
Everyone who lives, works or studies in this area is part of the
Partnership. The NP also has a Board which brings together
local representatives, service providers and elected members to
ensure progress is delivered.

Local Community Plan
Local people have told us that we are making steady progress but
there is still work to do.
Our local plan is largely based on what local people say is
still important to them. When we asked, this is what you told
us a perfect area would look like:
Our plan has 4 main themes. These themes are:
Supporting children, young people and
Improving health and wellbeing
Creating, safe, clean and strong
Improving employment opportunities
Data and local knowledge that informs the plan:
Making it happen
Working together delivers better results for this area and saves
money. To help deliver a perfect area, over the next three
years we will let local people decide who gets money from our
Community Grants Fund. Work with local people to deliver an area
that is safe, green and clean, where people say they have good
health. Help our children and young people do well, have fun
and have opportunities for jobs and training.
Local work is driven by the NP sub groups and anyone can get
involved and help develop better solutions for local issues.
You can find out more about the sub groups and their action
Minutes of sub group meeting can be found on the NP website
Delivery of the local priorities also help support delivery
against citywide priorities in the City
Community Plan (SOA4) 2013-16.
Have your say
We always want to hear your views and involve local people in
decision making. Next year local people will decide which
applications will receive a Community Grant - read more about You Decide! here
