Craigentinny / Duddingston

The Craigentinny/Duddingston ward includes the communities of Lochend, Restalrig, Craigentinny, Meadowbank, Willowbrae, Mountcastle and Duddingston.


Craigentinny/Duddingston has a dedicated and committed Green Team. You can read our latest newsletter here (pdf). Our candidate for the 4 May 2017 City of Edinburgh Council elections in Craigentinny/Duddingston ward is Alex Staniforth.

Alex is a local actor, writer and historian who can often be seen at St. Margaret’s House working on his latest project. He is a committed local activist who argued for, and got, extra funding for Edinburgh-based grass-roots arts projects. He has recently written for the Edinburgh Evening News arguing for the council to use the rent control powers it will soon get from Holyrood to bring down the cost of housing in the city. Besides the arts and housing his priorities are improving and maintaining crucial civic infrastructure, reducing the burden of traffic on London Road and greater income for carers.

You can contact him on or find him on Twitter.

We’re always looking for volunteers and donations to help us make Edinburgh a Greener and Fairer City. If you’d like to get involved in the campaign in Craigentinny/Duddingston please contact Alex, or
