Welcome to FCI

Fountainbridge Canalside Initiative (FCI)

We are a group of community activists and local groups working to ensure that a viable and sustainable new local community is developed on the former S&N Brewery site in Fountainbridge.

We are establishing the principle that community consultation and input is included in any and all development plans and are working with developers and the council to create a unique waterside neighbourhood - led, driven and supported by the community. Come and join us!
