As you may or may not be aware the Council adopted a local development plan for Edinburgh yesterday. The preparation of the Plan has been a real team effort which has included staff from Planning and other services as well as many members of the community engaging as the Plan has evolved towards the final version. So a big thanks to everyone for their contribution.
The Edinburgh Local Development Plan is the first plan of its kind for Edinburgh and is the first single development plan to cover the whole planning authority since the 1965 Development Plan. The adoption of the Plan supersedes two local plans which were both older than 5 years.
We want to update people on the Plan more frequently as we move forward and implement it. Therefore, we will be providing more regular updates at key stages in the delivery of the Plan.
If you would like to see how the Plan was formally adopted, then you can watch the webcast from the Full Council meeting on 24/11/2016.
A more in-depth look at the Edinburgh Local Development Plan will follow on from this post next week, explaining what the Plan means for Edinburgh. So keep your eyes peeled.
