Councillor Graham Hutchison

Graham Hutchison was elected as the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Councillor for Almond Ward in May 2017. Graham was born and brought up in the north of Edinburgh. Graham is the Conservative Group's Finance Spokesman.

Since graduating BA(Hons) in Business Studies from Napier University in 2006 Graham has built a successful career in the financial services industry and was until recently employed as an Accounting and Valuations Manager for one of the UK’s largest financial institutions. In his spare time Graham serves as an Elder of the Church of Scotland, he is a keen lawn bowler and enjoys football and foreign travel.

Graham was inspired to seek elected office following the SNPs failure to respect the democratic will of the Scottish people as expressed in the 2014 referendum.

Speaking after his election to Edinburgh City Council Graham said: "As a Kirkliston resident I have first hand experience of how life in rural west Edinburgh differs from that in the centre of our city.  The previous SNP/Labour administration repeatedly showed disregard for the residents of our ward, allowing excessive and unconstrained housebuilding without supporting improvements to the already overburdened infrastructure and local services.  As your councillor I will be a champion for local issues and always fight for the best interests of Almond residents."

Council has a change of heart on Salvesen Steps - Graham Hutchison

Tucked away on the picturesque River Almond Walkway, roughly halfway between the Cramond Brig and Cramond Village, lie the Salvesen Steps.  Given as a gift to the city in 1966, the steps form a vital link over a rocky outcrop and without them the walkway as a continuous path would not exist.
