Councillor Hal Osler


Hal Osler was first elected as councillor for Inverleith in 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.

Maidencraig Steps

2 Nov 2022

There have been a number of requests over the years to improve the steps at Maidencraigs. They provide a vital active travel link for residents to access Craigleith Retail Park, amongst other places.

Hal Osler said, “over the years the steps have been repaired but this has only been as a temporary fix and they need to be replaced as they are quite steep and crumbling. What has been requested is a gentle ramp which would make it easier for many living in the nearby Queens Court, as well as cyclists and those pushing buggies.

"I have asked for this to be looked at again and will push for improvements to be made as it is very important to support those walking and cycling and make sure that they can move about safely. I would like to thank all the residents and the local community Council for keeping up the pressure.”
