Consultation on Draft Supplementary Guidance for Developer Contributions and Infrastructure Delivery

Hello All,

Following the Edinburgh Local Development Plan adoption, we were quick to publish an Action Programme which sets out how the Plan will be delivered. This is especially important to put the new policies in to place.

One of the new sections in the Plan outlines policies for when developers need to contribute money towards schools, roads, streets and parks as a result of the impact their development will have on the local community.

To support the new policies and how they will be delivered in the Action Programme, supplementary guidance on Developer Contributions and Infrastructure Delivery will be finalised in the New Year. You can comment on the draft guidance until 3 February 2017. Your views will be used to inform the final content of the guidance.

Edinburgh Street Design Guidance

The consultation on the draft Edinburgh Street Design Guidance is now underway and we’d like your views on the streets in the City.

The City has a range of street types from historic streets to new streets and getting their design right is important to us all.  The guidance will help to make streets places for people by giving greater emphasis to walking, cycling and public transport.

We’re using a survey to give you a chance to tell us what you think about a range of streets in Edinburgh and to help us understand your views on the guidance document.

We’re also developing a series of detailed information in the form of fact sheets as part of the guidance and we will put these online as they are prepared.

You can also email us comments to streetdesign@edinburgh.gov.uk at any time.
