Our community led survey to find out your views and suggestions for BF and south Edinburgh was completed last year. Thank you if you were one of the 300+ people who completed the survey. We have been looking through the data with volunteers and consolidating the info into proposals. The next step is to make an action plan to realise these ideas.
If you would like to get involved or learn more about it we are planning an online session on the 13th May 5.30-7pm. Contact email@example.com if you would like to get involved.
