City Plan 2030

The City Council is preparing a new Local Development Plan for Edinburgh called City Plan 2030. This plan will set out how it is proposed to develop the city sustainably over the next ten years.  It includes proposals for the siting of new housing development areas.

The first engagement stage ‘Choices for City Plan 2030’ took place between January and April 2020, including a consultation event in Ratho Community Centre.  They received over 1800 responses to the consultation from organisations, community groups and members of the public in the city.  A report on the responses to Choices for City Plan 2030 will now be considered by Planning Committee on 12 August 2020. You can view the committee report, appendixes and full consultation responses on the website

A new Development Plan Scheme which sets out the timetable for the next stage of the plan process and how you can get involved will also be presented to the committee.
