City leader Jenny Dawe wants to increase the links between the council and religious faiths.

Cllr Dawe and chief executive Sue Bruce visited the Edinburgh Sikh Gurdwara in Leith this month to discuss matters affecting the Sikh community.

In a her latest leader’s report, Cllr Dawe said: “Following our visit, an action plan has been developed to address Gurdwara development, access to community halls, engagement with the local neighbourhood partnership and support for festivals and civic events.

“Over the forthcoming months we plan to strengthen our links to communities of faith and belief through visits to Edinburgh Churches Together and Blackhall Mosque.”
