Report Card

Very successful Wester Hailes Community Council AGM last night with a few new faces and volunteers to get involved. Its been a difficult transition from the old Rep Council but the patience and determination of a small band of stalwarts is beginning to pay off and its good to see the local community developing a strong voice again. Thought their meeting was particularly well handled by the guest chair for the evening too !!!

Today was the May Council meeting, if you missed the live webcast a full set of papers and reports are on this link. Among a lot of other business we also considered our first year report card as it were, i.e. a progress report on our Capital Coalition pledges for the city. This particular report is here but progress can also be monitored anytime on the Council's main website under the section called "Coalition Pledges". It means that we can be held to account on the promises we have made and ensures we focus on delivering what we said we would. It's an excellent example of openness and transparency - and also a bit scary too !!!....
