We had hoped to carry out the main consultation for City Plan 2030 in the first half of 2019. However, this is now not possible. The main consultation for City Plan 2030 is now expected to take place in the latter half of 2019. We will publish a new Development Plan Scheme in August 2019 which will include the new timetable.

The Strategic Development Plan is about long-term planning, setting a vision and spatial strategy for Edinburgh and South East Scotland. As part of the preparation of the second Strategic Development Plan SESplan, the Strategic Development Plan Authority, have published a Main Issues Report.
The Main Issues Report is a consultation document which highlights the key challenges facing the region over the next 20 years and presents a series of issues and options on how to address them. This is summarised in an Easy Read Guide.
Consultation takes place from 21 July 2015 until 30 September 2015. A series of events are taking place across the area and details are available on the SESplan website. You can give your responses on the issues by submitting a response via the SESplan Consultation Portal.
Responses will be used to inform the policies in the second Strategic Development Plan.
