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.

Water of Leith Flooding - Stockbridge

28 Feb 2023

Residents in the Stockbridge Colonies and in Warriston Crescent raised a number of concerns following the severe flood event on 30th December last year.

Issues have been raised with management of the Water of Leith Flood Defences and how information was relayed to affected residents. Those living in the area depend upon the flood defences to prevent their homes from flooding.

Local Lib Dem councillor Hal Osler sais, “I am very grateful for the level of engagement with residents and I fully appreciate the concerns raised. Some recent communication with officers has resulted in better information made available on the Council website.

"We also had a meeting with officers and residents to discuss the matter and I am hopeful this will help going forward”.
