Alcohol in Leith

Closed 22 Apr 2016

Opened 15 Feb 2016

Overview

Leith Neighbourhood Partnership is made up of local people, elected members and local service providers who work together on making Leith a better place.  It puts listening to the local community at the heart of their work. 

In 2014, local people said that alcohol was a factor in some of the issues which needed to be prioritised.  Those views are supported by statistical information which tells us that alcohol impacts on the Leith Neighbourhood Partnership area in a number of ways.  

 

Why we are consulting

The City of Edinburgh’s Licensing Board regularly produce a statement on how they will carry out licensing in the city and the Partnership is asked to say how it would like this done in Leith.

The Partnership would like to be sure that what it says is the correct view of local people. So it would like to know more about local people’s experience and views on alcohol.

What happens next

Results of the survey will be presented at the Leith Neighbourhood Partnership meeting at 6.30 pm on 24 May 2016 at Lorne Primary School (tbc).  Next steps will be discussed at that meeting.
