Community Council election results

I understand Southside Community Council has insufficient nominated volunteers to enable it to be re-established.  6 nominations were needed to re-establish the community council - which folded in 2011.

Shortly before the deadline there were just three nominations.

However Grange and Prestonfield Community Council has had 13 nominations (minimum 8 nominations required for 16 vacancies). 

And I understand there are sufficient nominations for the Marchmont & Sciennes Community Council (minimum 7 required with 14 vacancies). 

The deadline for nominations was 4pm today.  The new community councils are expected to get underway in October.
