Consultation is now open for feedback on the draft Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage site management plan (2017-2022). Edinburgh Council is asking what you think of the draft plan, and would welcome you sharing the consultation link (https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/onte-whs-draft-plan) far and wide.
The consultation (downloadable here) looks at the six themes we discussed in our Oversight Group meetings and it will take about 15-20 minutes to respond. You can respond using the online survey (the detailed proposals appear alongside the relevant survey questions) or download a copy of the questions and submit your feedback via email. The consultation will close on 5 June 2017. An initial summary of findings will be published within 8 weeks of this date.
The feedback received will be analysed and further considered by the management partners to update and modify the Plan; the final version of the Management Plan will be formally endorsed by the partners by September 2017.
If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in with the Site Co-ordinator (contact details below).

(Adapted from an email from SESplan)
SESplan, the Strategic Development Planning Authority for South East Scotland, has prepared a new Proposed Strategic Development Plan. The Proposed Strategic Development Plan sets out a vision, broad development patterns and levels of growth for the city region over a 20 year period from 2018.
It is intended that the plan will replace the current Strategic Development Plan in 2018 and will inform the next set of Local Development Plans in the future. The Proposed Strategic Development Plan is based on the options in, and responses to, the 2015 Main Issues Report.
The Proposed Strategic Development Plan, the Environmental Report and other supporting documents are available to view on the SESplan website: www.sesplan.gov.uk
The formal period of representations on the Proposed Strategic Development Plan will start on 13 October and run until 5pm on Thursday 24 November 2016. During this period anyone will be able to submit representations using the SESplan Consultation Portal: Continue reading
