Fairmilehead Community Council


Fairmilehead CC meets on the first Tuesday of the month in Fairmilehead Parish Church Halls except for July and August.

Fairmilehead CC stretches from the southern limits of the Braid Hills in the north to the boundary between Edinburgh and Midlothian along the Pentland Hills in the south and from the western boundary of Mortonhall Estate in the east to Dreghorn Link in the west.

The area has a history extending back many hundreds of years and formerly comprised a lot of separate villages or hamlets on the periphery of Edinburgh.

The Council area forms part of the Edinburgh South Constituency of the Westminster and Edinburgh Pentlands Constituency of the Scottish Parliament.  It also comprises the Local Ward of Colinton/Fairmilehead.

The Community Council represents all shades of opinion in the area and all our meetings are open to the public.  Anybody resident or working in the area is free to raise any matter with us.

Some recent examples have been the protection of the green belt, saving Oxgangs Post Office, objecting to a large scale hotel development in Midlothian but which adjoins our boundary, obtaining funding for the local youth project and club.
