23 August 2019Consultations - Review of polling districts and polling places

Midlothian Council want to hear your views on the buildings they intend to use as polling places in future elections.

In particular, they want to minimise the number of schools  used as polling places to avoid them being closed to pupils and staff on election days. The aim would be, therefore, to keep schools on the proposed lists open and make a separate entrance available to voters. 

The formal notice of the review can be found here:


You can also view the consultation at the following link. The closing date for submisions is 25 Sep

Good afternoon, we are currently in the process of finalising this year’s community council training day so please save the date, Saturday 26thOctober at Lasswade High!

We already have a few ideas for some of the workshops, including community resilience and participatory budgeting, but we would really like to know what would be useful for you and your community council so we can tailor the day to your needs.

Please email in any ideas and we will get them included in the programme – thanks, Catherine.
