Postcard allows people to have a say about issues in the community

Have your say

A new postcard has been created for residents in the west of the city to highlight the work of local community safety teams.

The postcard shows how people can raise issues of concern with the West Community Safety Forum.

Achievements in recent months have included regular joint police and council patrols to deal with broken glass and dog fouling close to the play area at Clermiston Park, engaging with young people by liaising with schools, and working with parents to respond when antisocial behaviour is identified.

Other initiatives have included raising awareness of and stopping dangerous parking around schools so it is safer for children to cross roads, and speaking to speeding cyclists in Roseburn Park.

The postcard can be used by members of the community to contact the Neighbourhood Partnership about any suggestions regarding improvements to the area.

Councillor Paul Edie, the city’s community safety leader and chair of the Western Edinburgh Neighbourhood Partnership, said: “This postcard gives people an opportunity to have their say in what matters to them.”
