Edinburgh Planning has published its new Development Concordat which sets out how developers, community organisations and the Council can work together to achieve good placemaking.
The Concordat seeks to help the city’s economic recovery by promoting collaboration. It builds on the values and principles of the 2050 Edinburgh City Vision which provides clear aspirations for what the city is looking to achieve.
The Concordat recognises the need for agility, flexibility and collaborative engagement between Council services, the development and business communities and community organisations.

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council. Those who are interested in the proposed tram extension, or the Picardy Place redevelopment might be interested in section 3.27 of the Transport Strategy.)
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:
All three contribute towards the developing 2050 Edinburgh City Vision, by improving mobility, and creating better places.
To help shape the development of the three projects we kindly request your attendance at a stakeholder workshop, being held to better understand issues associated with transport, mobility, and placemaking across our city, as well as identifying opportunities for improvement. Such stakeholder feedback will inform the development of proposals to be consulted on across the city later in the year.
By the end of Monday 30 April, please register your interest to attend one of the following workshops at the City Chambers (European Room – High Street, Edinburgh), by emailing email@example.com with
- your name

- your organisation (where relevant), and
- your workshop preference:
- Wed. 9 May 18:00-20:00, or
- Thu. 10 May 09:30-11:30.
Thank you in advance for your time and anticipated assistance, and we look forward to hearing from you.
