Ben Parker was elected Green councillor for Morningside ward in the 2022 Council Elections.

Originally from North Yorkshire, Ben moved to Edinburgh for University in 2015 where he has lived ever since. Ben holds the Green Group portfolio for Climate and Environment and sits on the Council’s Policy & Sustainability Committee and Housing, Homelessness & Fair Work Committee. Ben has a particular interest in housing, as well as transport/active travel.

Locally, he has been involved in setting up a safe walking, wheeling and cycling group promoting the Greenbank-Meadows Quiet Route, and he is interested in thinking more about what can be done to make the Bruntsfield/Morningside high street a safer and more welcoming place for people to meet and gather.
