Imagine a Midlothian where …

  • communities create their own economic opportunities; most businesses are locally-owned and run; economic benefits are re-invested in the community; and there is a fairer distribution of wealth
  • where we all feel part of the communities where we live; where shops, workplaces, schools and local amenities are easily reached by walking, cycling or public transport; and where we can be involved in the decisions that affect us
  • people of all ages and abilities can achieve their full potential
  • we can all have a high quality, energy efficient home that meets our needs
  • we don’t take from the environment more than it can sustain because we know we are looking after the planet for future generations
  • everyone can eat healthy, affordable food, breathe clean air, and enjoy unspoiled spaces for exercise and relaxation
