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 Council is reviewing its Committee Structure and governance arrangements following the elections in May.  The next Neighbourhood Partnership meeting will be on Wednesday 23 August at 6.30 in the East Neighbourhood Centre, 101 Niddrie Mains Road. We will let you know if there are any changes in the arrangements then.
