Michelle Mulvaney (Strategy Manager at the City of Edinburgh Council) shared with us an overview of the Edinburgh Partnership’s Community Planning strategy and governance which includes the LOIPs, LIPs, the Neighbourhood Networks and how the VSF’s fit into that. Her presentation is here: ECHF Presentation Feb 20
The South West of the city spans Colinton, Fairmilehead, Fountainbridge, Craiglockhart, Pentland Hills, Sighthill, Gorgie / Dalry, Saughton, Longstone, Broomhouse, Sighthill and part of Wester Hailles.
The second of this round of VSF was the Forth and Inverleith Forum, chaired by Dawn Anderson (Pilton CHP) Morag Wilson (Stepping Stones).
On 28th and 29th January I chaired what we have affectionately called our ‘Dragon’s Den;’ a panel of four: Suzanne Lowden (CEC), Liz Simpson (NHS Lothian), Ian Brooke (EVOC) and myself.
