The Scottish Government are seeking views about the delivery of Social Care in Scotland.
Social care includes support for people with physical disability, learning disabilities or mental health conditions, older people and those with dementia, people with or recovering from alcohol or drug addictions, those who are, have been or are at risk of being homeless, and children and families who may need additional support, or where children are unable to live with their own families. There are many social care services delivered in Colinton including care homes, care at home, hospital at home and housing support.

A proposal to consult on the designation of a Short-Term Let Control Area for the entire Council area was approved by the Planning Committee on 11 August 2021.A public consultation will run from Friday 3 September until Friday 5 November.
The proposal for designation, a map of the area proposed and supporting documents can be viewed on the Council’s website. A certified copy of the Designation will be deposited at City Chambers Reception, 249-253 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1YJ for inspection by any person free of charge, Monday to Thursday between 9am and 5pm and Friday between 9am and 3:30pm.
The new powers would mean all residential properties, which are not an owner’s principal home, being let as short-term lets in their totality throughout the local authority area would require approval of a ‘change of use’ to a short-term let.
Representations regarding the Designation may be made during the consultation period. This can be done through the Councils Consultation Hub.
