Local Conversations – Muirhouse


Creating a place for all, for everyone, for our community, our clan!


The People’s Health Trust has allocated £336,565 over 3 years to aid development of residents ideas that will futher our Muirhouse vision.

Since 2017 Community Renewal has been working with Muirhouse residents to find out what you like, dislike and what needs to improve to make Muirhouse the best place to live.

From this, 3 community priorities have been identified and we’re working with residents to tackle these priority areas which are:

• The Environment

• Community Wellbeing

• Bringing the Community Together
