A new report on the local priorities of residents living in Liberton & District conducted by the area's community council has been commended in a Parliamentary motion tabled by Lothian MSP Miles Briggs. Liberton & District Community Council Survey Report 2016 follows a survey of local people and identified that the condition of roads, pavements, traffic levels and crossings was the highest priority for local residents. 

 

Speaking today Miles said:

 

" I commend members of Liberton & District Community Council for their good work in surveying the views of local residents and producing this report on priorities for their area. 

 

" This report is a valuable source of information and I am sure it will be closely studied by the newly elected councillors serving Liberton in the city chambers."

That the Parliament welcomes the Liberton and District Community Council survey report 2016; notes that the survey was distributed to all of the households that the community council represents and that residents responded via Freepost, ranking their priorities; welcomes the increase in the number of responses compared with the previous survey, which was held in 2010; believes that it highlighted that the condition of roads, pavements, traffic levels and crossings were ranked by residents as their highest priority, and that a desire for more to be done with community gardens, parks and green spaces was expressed; commends the members of the community council on once again engaging with people and seeking their views about the community’s priorities, and hopes that all of the elected representatives, agencies and charities in the Liberton and District Community Council's area take on board the report’s findings and continue to work to improve live for the residents.
