Welcome to Roslin & Bilston Community Council
The website of the Roslin & Bilston Community Council aims to provide information to the local community on a range of issues discussed at monthly meetings.
What is Roslin & Bilston Community Council?
The Community Council was formed in 1974 and it's objectives are to:
- ascertain, co-ordinate and express to the local authority for its area and to public authorities, the views of the community which it represents, in relation to matters for which those authorities are responsible, and to take such action in the interests of that community as appears to it to be expedient and practicable.
- encourage co-operation among the various community organisations in the area.
- retain the identity of a Community amongst people living in the area.
Who is Roslin & Bilston Community Council for?
The Community Council is a voluntary organisation that meets once a month and provides a forum for residents, businesses and groups within Roslin, Bilston and the surrounding area.
Our meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month, alternating between Bilston Miners and Roslin Pavilion, members of the public are free to come along and raise any issue they wish with the committee. Also at the meetings are local councillors and a representative from Lothian and Borders Police.
Residents, people who run groups and own businesses in the area, people who have a strong interest in the community are welcome to join us. If you are interested in becoming a member please attend one of our monthly meetings or use our contact page.
