Community councils

Proposed merger

Midlothian Council proposes to amend the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils through a merger of:

  • Bonnyrigg and Lasswade Community Council and Poltonhall and Hopefield Community Council.

This proposed merger reflects the actual nature of the wider Bonnyrigg community. Both community councils have voted to progress the merger.

A 90 day consultation process has begun. Send written representations on the proposed amendments to [email protected] by Friday 19 May 2021.
