Following on from a previous post, there is a survey on Edinburgh Council’s consultation hub.
This covers the three components of the ‘Connecting our City, Transforming our Places‘ project ‘will help achieve the Edinburgh 2050 vision; a fairer, thriving, connected and inspired city’. These components are:
- Edinburgh City Centre Transformation– an action plan for a vibrant and people-focussed capital city centre to improve community, economic and cultural life, working to the following vision. ‘An exceptional city centre that is for all, a place for people to live, work, visit and play. A place that is for the future, enriched by the legacy of the past.’
- The City Mobility Plan– setting citywide transport policy and actions based around the following vision. ‘Edinburgh will have a cleaner, safer, inclusive and accessible transport system delivering healthier, thriving and fairer capital city, and a higher quality of life for Edinburgh residents’.
- Low Emission Zones– the Council is taking a comprehensive approach to developing LEZs as a step towards protecting Edinburgh’s citizens from the harms of poor air quality, in line with Scottish Government priorities to introduce LEZs in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, and Glasgow by 2020.
As with the previous post, this is an Edinburgh Council exercise.

Three inter-related projects are being developed collectively by the City of Edinburgh Council to improve the quality of life of those who live, work, and visit Scotland’s capital city, by helping to create safer and more attractive streets and spaces, cleaner air, and improved access for all.
The three projects are:
- Edinburgh’s Transport Strategy which is being reviewed to determine fit-for-purpose transport and mobility policies and actions for our city
- Central Edinburgh Transformation which concerns the future development of central Edinburgh and its public realm
- the development of a Low Emission Zone aimed at improving air quality by keeping the most polluting vehicles out of the most polluted places.
All three contribute towards the developing 2050 Edinburgh City Vision, by improving mobility, and creating better places. Continue reading
