Longstone Community Council


We represent about 4000 residents who live in 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.

LCC does not meet in January, April, July or August unless there is urgent business. Information on when the next meetings are to be held, agendas, and minutes can all be found on the 'meeting' page.

The next meeting of LCC is at 7.30pm on 13/05/24 at Slateford/Longstone Church.

You can be assured of a warm welcome at our meetings and being given the opportunity to ask questions at the end of each agenda item, or if you wish to raise a specific matter, by doing so under the 'Questions from the public' agenda item. We will post the agenda here once it's ready.

Trained staff and Royal Voluntary Service volunteers help you on and off the minibus. You can choose your books and enjoy a coffee and a chat before being taken home again. Library Link members don't pay library charges or fines. Or use the Home delivery service or the Mobile library service, which visits care homes, retirement flats and sheltered housing complexes.
