Welcome to Fountainbridge / Craiglockhart local Green team
We are made up of local Green Party members and other green or community-minded people in the council ward of Fountainbridge / Craiglockhart.
The Fountainbridge / Craiglockhart Greens’ spokeperson and councillor is Gavin Corbett, who was elected in May 2012 and re-elected in May 2017. Gavin serves as the party’s finance and budget spokesperson on the City of Edinburgh Council.
Gavin has lived in Shandon in the heart of the area for 20 years, with his wife and two sons. Originally from Ayrshire, Gavin works for the housing charity Shelter Scotland. He has been a community councillor, chair of his children’s school, the main founder of Shandon Local Food Group and a campaigner for responsible car-parking. He is a local scout leader and is also active with Friends of Harrison Park.
