City Plan 2030: LHNCC’s public meeting

LHNCC is holding a public meeting on Thursday 9 December at 18:30 to discuss Edinburgh’s proposed new local development plan (City Plan 2030). 

If you have comments or views on the plan which you would like to have included in LHNCC’s response you can send them to secretary@lhncc.org.uk – or you can register to join the meeting on 9 December (via Teams video conferencing).

Register via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/city-plan-2030-lhnccs-public-meeting-tickets-222884181587. We will send a Teams link on Thursday afternoon to join the meeting.

The City Plan sets out locations for new homes and businesses, where new infrastructure and facilities are required and how places of value will be protected. It provides policies which will be used to determine future planning applications.

LHNCC is preparing a response on the content of the plan that is relevant to the Leith Harbour and Newhaven area, which must be submitted by 20 December – the closing date for the proposed City Plan’s period for representation.

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

LHNCC agenda: April 2020

Given the unusual nature of the circumstances we are in, we are doing our best for the Community Council and also the best in our responsibility to deliver upon our commitment to the community which we serve.

Because LHNCC is currently learning how to conduct meetings online, this will be a members-only ‘discussion’ meeting.

  • LHNCC welcomes public input in advance via the website contact-form at https://lhncc.org.uk/contact-us/.
  • Public input is equally welcome at any time after the meeting.

LHNCC is aware that online meetings exclude those who cannot access them, whatever the reason. However, this is the best it can offer under the current circumstances.

We would also like to thank all the valiant people who are providing essential services across all sectors in our community and beyond.
