There are three Community Councils in the Southside/Newington ward.
- Southside CC (No election because it was only recently formed)
- Grange/Prestonfield CC (minimum 8 members, maximum 16)
- Marchmont Sciennes CC (minimum 14 members, maximum 14)
I am returning officer for the Grange/Prestonfield one. But for whatever community council you are considering standing for you can get the details on the Edinburgh Council website.
Nominations can be made from today from persons residing within the Community Council area. They have to be completed and returned by 4pm on Monday 26th September.
Nomination forms can be downloaded here.
In addition, there can be representatives of community interest groups active within the community council area. See the link above for general details.
