Welcome to the website of Longstone Community Council
We represent the 4000 or so residents of most of the parish of Slateford/Longstone, which includes, not just Longstone, but Redhall, Slateford, Kingsknowe and the area around Dovecot Park south of Lanark Road to the river (see plan on the ABOUT US page).
This page will show the latest news and activities. For older news go to our NEWS page.

The Planning Dept has recommended refusal of the application (15/05401/FUL) to build 247 student flats on the sites of The Blue Goose and Westside Motors in Slateford. It was to be determined at a meeting on 25 May 2016, but has been delayed to allow a site visit at 1015 on Wed 1 June. A decision was to be made on 8 June, but instead it was continued for reason unknown.
The Redhall Tenants and Residents Group has called for a one-way system at the top of Redhall Drive. See this link to their petition to CEC. But the petition was last year and is now OOD.
