Following on from these events, we are now running a short online survey using the questions from the Place Standard tool, which, if you live, work or spend time in the Southside, we would love it if you could spare 5 -10 minutes to complete it.
Just a reminder of what the Place Standard is, it is a tool to evaluate the quality of a place. There are 14 questions which cover the social and physical elements of a place. Each question is given a score out of 7 based on what people think and feel, 7 being excellent and 1 being poor.
The results of the events and the online survey will help to inform future policies and change in the area, so it is vitally important that you have your say on what needs to be improved.
Thank you in advance for taking time out to complete the survey.
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.
