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.


From 2-6 August, between nos. 30-67 Longstone Rd (both sides), waiting loading and unloading will be restricted to allow sewer works to proceed.     
Does anyone know if this happened?     


LCC does not meet in January, April, July or August unless there is urgent business.


 


See NEWS for result of 2016 election for LCC.

For meetings and events see the DIARY page.

If you can't get to a City library, make use of this free bus service run by the RVS.

     You can choose your books and enjoy a coffee and a chat before being taken home again.
     Or use the Home delivery service or the Mobile library service, which visits care homes, retirement flats and sheltered housing complexes.
