Click HERE for our Winter newsletter. We don’t have the resources to distribute these newsletters to all our households but we hope to distribute this one in Gracemount; earlier issues were also distributed selectively and there are links to them on the Minutes tab. Paper copies of the current one should be available in Liberton Kirk Centre (where we also have a letter box for paper mail), Fleming Chemist in Liberton Brae, Liberton Gardens Post Office, and the Gracemount Leisure Centre. Sign up here to our mailing list in order to receive future quarterly e-newsletter. We won’t pass your email address on to any other organisation.

Our new developing FAQs section gives answers and helpful links to questions commonly asked within the LDCC area. You can view it Here.

  • The next meeting will be on Monday 26 March at 7 pm in the Liberton Kirk Halls, Kirkgate. Click HERE for the agenda.  All are welcome! Minutes are under the minute tab.
  • Click HERE and HERE to learn about the CEC’s new Localities which are gradually subsuming Neighbourhood Partnerships. HERE is the Council paper formally establishing their remits.
  • We have been concerned for some time about hazards of the complex junction at the bottom of Liberton Brae, particularly for cyclists and pedestrians. Click HERE for suggestions we made to the City Council with Councillor Howie’s help and the responses from ‘Active Travel’. The LDCC will continue to pursue this matter and would welcome comments.

HERE is a map of Ward 16 as proposed by the Boundary Commission to the Scottish Ministers.  It is cheering that the Commission have listened to the CC’s objection (HERE) and have not extracted the heart of Liberton, including the Kirk and High School, into the Newington ward, as suggested in its initial proposals (HERE) . Happily the Scottish Ministers agree. Sadly the northerly tip of our area (N of Double Hedges) had to be put in Ward 15 (Southside)to satisfy electoral arithmetic.  HERE is a map which shows the proposed and previous wards over the whole city.
