Midlothian Community Councils express grave concern about cuts

A spate of wilful fire raising is causing real concern within the Mayfield community.

Bonnyrigg and Lasswade Community Council and Poltonhall and Hopefield Community Council are to formally merge.

A community council which has been fighting to help local residents for more than 30 years is facing being disbanded because of a lack of members.

Gorebridge and Moorfoot communities are working together on a Community Action Plan 2022-2027.

The East Safety Camera Unit and Eskbank and Newbattle Community Council have been working together to improve road safety, by encouraging drivers to stick to the 30mph speed limit.

Midlothian Council has agreed to stabilise the slope and reopen the steps at Ironmills Park, Dalkeith.

Following an incident at the weekend when the bridge parapet was struck and fell into the river it is expected to take up to four weeks to repair.

What’s wrong with the Planning system and how can we fix it?

A neighbourhood plan has been launched for the Bonnyrigg, Lasswade and Poltonhall areas of Midlothian.

An open meeting for the community was held in early July to discuss the Dalkeith Community Hub. Read here to find out what was discussed.

Everyone is invited to take part in a community workshop on a Hub for Dalkeith at the Dalkeith Arts Centre from 6-8pm on Thursday 2nd of July, hosted jointly by the Community Councils of Dalkeith & District and Eskbank & Newbattle.

Public asked to take a lead in developing ideas, concepts and a practical way forward to give our County Town facilities worthy of its importance to Midlothian.

The good news is that the steps are finally open, once again. Midlothian Council advise that the repair is a temporary solution, to permit public access and use of the park, and will be followed up by more permanent works in early Spring.

There are fifteen Community Councils in Midlothian.
