About us

The first meeting of the Liberton Community Council was on 23rd April 2001. The name was broadened in 2009.

The LDCC’s mission statement is:

“We will proactively engage with the local community and represent its views to the local authorities and others. This will involve both informing our community of the issues affecting it, and responding to the issues that it raises with us.”

Our vision is:

“Our community will be a safe, clean, friendly and happy place to live, work and grow.”
