Draft Manifesto for the 2017 Local Elections launched today ...
Our Edinburgh; a European City to be proud of ...
There are now only 22-weeks left until the next Local Government Elections take place on Thursday 4th May 2017. On that day next year, the residents of Edinburgh will elect City Councillors for the next five-year period.
Back in late 2011, we published a ‘draft manifesto’ for the last Local Government elections, which took place in May 2012. We received over 1,000 submissions from members of the public in Edinburgh, and re-drafted our final Manifesto as a direct result of that feedback.
As mentioned yesterday; we’re launching a full ‘draft manifesto’ again this year, in preparation for the next Local Government Elections in May 2017.
This document represents our initial ideas, but as in 2011, we want to hear from you; and we will adjust this draft document, before launching our final Manifesto in March 2017.
This is your chance to directly influence our current thinking. We’d like to know what you think of our ideas, or give us your own ideas to ensure Edinburgh remains a European City to be proud of.
You can leave your feedback below or contact us via phone, email or freepost (details below). Please send us any feedback you may have by Tuesday 28 February 2017.
