botanics1The Inverleith Society was founded as an amenity society in 1975 with the aim of encouraging the preservation and improvement of the Inverleith district of Edinburgh.  The Inverleith Conservation Area, which provides the boundaries for the Society's operation covers the area from Ferry Road in the north to Canonmills in the south, and from East Fettes Avenue and Inverleith Park in the west to the Warriston Playing Fields in the east. We communicate with our members and others with an interest in the conservation and amenity of Inverleith though our website, newsposts and Facebook.

The Society monitors and comments on planning, transport and environmental issues affecting the area. We have good contacts with local political representatives and Council officiers which ensures we get our voice heard on issues of concern.

Our influence is enhanced by increasing the number of our members. If you live in the Inverleith Conservation Area please consider joining the Society - the annual membership fee is only £10.00 per household (£5.00 for single senior citizens) or £120 for Life Membership.

The Society produces an annual newsletter - Inverleith News - which is delivered to all members in the area. Our AGM is held in the Spring. Members receive invitations to social events organised by the Society. The latest edition of Inverleith News and  a number of back issues are available for download in the links section. 

The affairs of the Society are run by the Executive Committee of between 6 and 8 members who are elected at the AGM. If you wish to get in touch with the Society please contact any member of the Committee or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
