Queensferry and District Community Council
Welcome to the official website of the Queensferry & District Community Council, a voluntary, but statutory body representing the people of Queensferry and Dalmeny.
Situated on the edge of the City of Edinburgh and on the banks of the Firth of Forth, Queensferry, more popularly known as South Queensferry, is framed by the historic Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge. The old town is a conservation area, with a narrow cobbled High Street. As an ancient former Royal Burgh it forms an attractive destination for many thousands of visitors and tourists each year. The situation and its proximity to Edinburgh have resulted in considerable growth with substantial housing schemes mainly in the Scotstoun, Echline, Springfield and Station Road areas. Today Queensferry forms the largest settlement in rural west Edinburgh with four primary schools, a high school and numerous local amenities such as shops, bars and restaurants.
QDCC is involved in a wide range of issues including planning, transport, environment, community safety and the Forth Replacement Crossing. Sub-committees of the community council meet local stakeholders and officials regularly to take forward these issues on behalf of the community in addition to monthly business meetings of the full community council.
