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:

Youth email footer.jpg Supporting children, young people and families

Health email footer.jpg Improving health and wellbeing

Community email footers.jpg Creating, safe, clean and strong communities

Jobs email footer.jpg Improving employment opportunities

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 plans below:


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
