‘City Plan 2030’ – Forthcoming Information Sessions & How to Respond / Comment

Adapted from an email sent to the New Town & Broughton Community Council from the ‘City Plan 2030’ team within the Council’s Planning Department as received on Tuesday 23rd November.

This is an important document as it sets the basis for future developments across Edinburgh as well as defining the specific planning policies by which future planning applications are determined. However, it is complex, lengthy and detailed.  

There are a number of  ‘drop-in’ sessions available (but only virtual as far as we understand) to both get a better understanding of the proposals as well as to provide comments on the proposed plan. We also intend to discuss this further at our meeting on 13th December. 

(Apologies for the short notice for some of these sessions).    

The City Plan 2030 period for representations has been open for 2 weeks and there is still time to make your representations on the consultation hub before it ends on the 20th December.

The consultation hub contains the plan in full and you can comment on each section in turn or simply navigate to the part you wish to comment on. Our guide will help you navigate.

Our Quick Guide to City Plan 2030 gives an overview of each section of the plan and what it contains plus more information on the plan and the process.

You can also check out the interactive proposals map along with the accompanying Environmental Report and a range of background documents used to inform the plan.

Representations can be in support of, or object to any aspect of the proposed plan and should set out any changes you wish to see. Comments can also be made on the Environmental Report and background documents.
