What? A grass roots public art programme. Panels with artwork from local artists, schools & photographers create a changing display of art work on the street. Your original artwork could be here on the side of this former policebox.
Where? On the outside of Leith walk policebox.
When? August 2018 to August 2019
Why? Public art is free and accessible to all. Art in public places makes people feel connected to each other and proud of their neighbourhood. A piece of art can lift your mood and make your day.
Who? Do you want to get involved? Be part of the Edinburgh tool library team installing the works. Or have your original artwork displayed. We will be holding an open competition in 2019 and welcome original art from anybody. You do not have to be an artist. Find out more at www.leithwalkpolicebox.com.

Hello and welcome to the first newsletter from the City Plan 2030 team.
In this issue: What is City Plan 2030?, Engaging with children & young People, An update on recent community workshops and A look ahead to the choices for City Plan 2030.
- What is City Plan 2030?
City Plan 2030 will be Edinburgh’s next local development plan. It will set out a strategy to guide Edinburgh’s growth and the policies which we use to guide new development. The City Plan 2030 project was launched in September 2018, via our Development Plan Scheme. The Development Plan Scheme explains how City Plan 2030 will be prepared, a timetable and further information on how you can get involved. You can download the Development Plan Scheme from our website.
- Engaging children & young people
As we start to prepare City Plan 2030, we have been visiting secondary schools across Edinburgh, coinciding with the 2018 Year of Young People. We have been asking young people about what they think about their area, and what issues are facing the city. You can see the findings from the workshops on our blog and we will be using their thoughts as we start to prepare the plan.
- An update on recent community workshops
We have put together a short video on how we have been engaging local communities to date. You can view the video on our blog. If you have any ideas for future engagement, get in touch with the City Plan Team. We are holding an additional community workshop on Monday 3 December at Currie Library from 6pm – 7.30pm, registration and light refreshments from 5.45pm.
- A look ahead to the choices for City Plan 2030
The main consultation for City Plan 2030 is due to take place over 8 weeks in February and March 2019. The consultation will set out the main choices that we need to make as we prepare the next plan and we are keen for people to get involved. You can keep up to date with the project by:
