I’m a member of the New Town and Broughton Community Council (Communications Convener/Engagement Officer), also involved in the Five City Centre Community Councils group. As an inner city resident, I’ve been involved in issues involving protection of the world heritage site, Princes Street Gardens, and the First New Town (of Princes and George Streets etc). 

I consider myself an environmentalist: my background is in book publishing and IT, however I was trained as a field archaeologist and I’ve managed a biodiversity conservation project for the past 10 years. I have a strong interest in community council reform, specifically the redrawing of our boundaries to achieve equality of representation, resources and access to information.

EACC belongs to every Edinburgh Community Council

Its aim is to provide support, advise and give a collective voice for community councils when facing the challenges community councillors encounter on an almost daily basis. No one person is more important than any other. All community councils have a voice on the EACC!!
