botanics1The Inverleith Society was founded in 1975 to encourage the preservation and improvement of the Inverleith district of Edinburgh. It is an amenity society, not a formal Community Council, but enjoys good links with local Councillors and Council officials. The boundaries are from the Ferry Road on the north to Canonmills Bridge and the Water of Leith on the south, and from East Fettes Avenue/Inverleith Park on the west to the Warriston cycletrack on the east (click here to view map).

The Inverleith Society is working on your behalf monitoring planning applications, traffic proposals and general amenity issues. Our influence is enhanced by increasing the number of our members. If you live in this area please consider joining the Society - the annual membership fee is only £10.00 per household (£5.00 for single senior citizens).

The Society produces an annual newsletter - Inverleith News - which is delivered to all members in the area. Members also receive the Annual Report and audited Accounts at the AGM of the Society each autumn, and can also attend occasional social events organised by the Society. The latest edition and a number of back issues are available for download in the links section. (To view them you will require the free Adobe Acrobat Reader which is available by clicking here. )

The affairs of the Society are run by the Executive Committee of between 8 and 12 persons, elected at the AGM.
