Meetings take place in the Village Hall every month during the school year - usually on the 4th Wednesday at 8pm except for July, August and December.
These meetings are open to the public and there is an opportunity to 'have your say' on matters which concern you. Recent minutes and reports are appended below
We are always looking for new blood so if you would like to join, do please get in touch. Elections are held annually in June but we are able to co-opt members during the year.
EDCC covers the area on either side of the A703 from Leadburn to the Mailingsland Crossroads. It is non-political in nature and acts as a conduit to and from Scottish Borders Council on matters relevant to the community. EDCC views are taken into account on all major planning applications and it is given the opportunity to comment on a wide range of SBC reports at the draft stage.
Given the attendance of SBC councillors at meetings, as well as allowing opportunity to speak directly to them, it provides a mechanism for identifying the best way to approach SBC on a range of matters.
Like all the other clubs and societies in the village EDCC makes a difference to village life. In the past couple of years or so, EDCC has had two notice boards erected in the village; bought Christmas lights for the village hall; had the bus-shelter in the centre of the village painted; and initiated repairs to pavements.
The council is made up of eight elected members together with our three local Scottish Borders Councillors - Nathanial Buckingham, Catriona Bhatia and Willie Archibald. Also actively involved is our Community Police Liaison Officer - PC Vanessa Hamilton
