Hal Osler was elected as councillor for Inverleith on 4 May 2017.
Hal's priorities for Inverleith are:
- A review of community policing so that there is more presence at a local level to address residents' concerns.
- Supporting 20mph speed limits and a reduction of traffic on residential streets to reduce noise and increase safety
- More repairs and upgrades of recycling bins
- Getting roads and pavements fixed properly the first time and ensure that there is proper investment in improving the poor state of road surfaces.
- Reviewing the present parking tariff structure, so that more residents who pay for their parking permits can actually access a parking space while ensuring adequate pay and display provision.
Hal is the Liberal Democrat member of the Council's Culture and Communities Committee.
Malcolm Wood is our candidate, alongside Hal Osler, for the Inverleith Ward.
He has lived in Blackhall for 10 years, and is closely involved in the community - with two children at the local primary school, and as leader of a local scout group.
As a councillor he will push for safer walking and cycling routes, for action on climate change, for investment in education, and for repairs to our crumbling roads and pavements.
He will also campaign for more police action on anti-social behaviour and speeding.
