Covid restrictions preventing the Community Council holding public meetings online have now been relaxed.
Everyone is welcome to attend our next meeting but will have to comply with the following procedures.
At least 1 day in advance, those on the list will receive a non-transferrable code by email advising how to join the Microsoft Teams meeting via the web (Teams programme not required).
On joining the meeting, only those on the list will be permitted to join the meeting. The Chair as “owner” of the meeting has control over attendance and who can be heard and will give some initial guidance on participation.
As this procedure has not been used before, we may encounter some difficulties and would be grateful for your tolerance.
The Council (CEC) is inviting input on developing and refining their new PSMP. This will set out how Edinburgh manages its public outside space for events, filming and festivals.

The draft Public Space Management Plan will be presented to the Culture & Communities Committee in January 2021 and if approved will go to public consultation during Feb/April with the final PSMP presented to the Culture & Communities Committee in June 2021 for approval.
