Budget: local meetings - local views

The administration  is holding seven meetings at which views can be expressed directly to senior administration and council officials.  There is a consultation pack which gives background information.

The meeting for the Southside & Newington (and 2 other) wards takes place next Thursday (23rd Sept) in the Southside Community Centre between 7pm and 9pm.   Details of the other meetings, including a city wide one at 9am on Friday 15th October, can be found here.

Here's what you need to know about going to the meetings.  Numbers are limited and the Administration has issued invitations to specific people to attend.  In addition, at least 20 places have been reserved for members of the public.  If you wish to book a place, email councilbudgetATedinburgh.gov.uk (replace AT with @) or call 01315294425.

You will get more information here and here.

I'll see you there - though it is not a meeting for councillors to speak but for public views to be received. The first meeting held last week did not go well and there will be a number of changes to the format.
