Regular business meetings of the Community Council are held in the Gray Room at the Nelson Hall, Spittalfield Crescent (where Bernard Terrace meets St Leonards St), on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, except for July and August, starting at 6:45 pm. The AGM is held in May or June, immediately before the regular meeting.
Meetings are open to members of the public who are welcome to raise concerns and participate in discussions.
In the current climate of infection control, Southside Community Council will not be meeting physically. However, we will continue our work online and via email, so if you do have any concerns that should be brought to our attention, please don't hesitate to get in touch using the details on our Contacts page and we will continue to flag issues to our councillors, Council staff and other stakeholders as we always do.
We will be meeting by Zoom, so if you would like to observe a meeting please email us.
We will let you know through our website when we are able to resume our normal meetings. In the meantime, stay safe and look out for each other.
