In Inverleith there are four councillor positions and two of those elected in 2017 did not stand again.

These included Gavin Barrie, who has just completed two terms as a councillor stepped down as he resigned the SNP whip during the term of the SNP/Labour coalition, and Conservative group leader, Iain Whyte who moved to what he hoped would be a safe seat in Craigentinny/ Duddingston. Cllr Max Mitchell held on to what was left of the Conservative vote here, but the vast share of the vote went to self declared “waste warrior and pavement pedant”,Cllr Hal Osler.
