World Heritage Site Public Consultation

A period of consultation has been launched, inviting the public to have their say on how the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site is being run.

The City of Edinburgh Council, Edinburgh World Heritage and Historic Environment Scotland have teamed up to launch the process that will run through July.

It is a requirement of all World Heritage Sites that robust management plans are in place to ensure its key values are conserved. The current plan expires at the end of 2016. The new plan will be drawn up later in the year based on feedback and suggestions from the public. The consultation runs from 1 – 25 July.

The New Town and Broughton Community Council have a place on the committee overseeing  the development of the new plan. We encourage all residents to take part in this consultation. Please follow this link to take part in the consultation:
