Background

The Edinburgh Local Development Plan has eight town centres with more detail contained in Supplementary Guidance.  Preparing this guidance allows a more flexible approach to how we plan for these different town centres.

The guidance also sets out how we apply the Scottish Government’s Town Centre First Policy and emphasises how important town centres are as the heart of a community and a place for a range of activities.

Supplementary guidance is already in place for the City CentreCorstorphineGorgie/Dalry, and Tollcross town centres.  Later this year we’ll be preparing town centre guidance for the remaining town centres at Nicolson Street/Clerk Street, Portobello and Stockbridge.  You can keep up to date with these by subscribing to this blog or the Council’s consultation hub.
