Still time to give us your views on proposed plan for Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site

There are a few weeks left to give us your views on the proposed management plan for Edinburgh’s Old and New Towns’ World Heritage site.

Building on the awareness raised over the years on support available for building repairs, improving the quality of architecture, and the experience of residents and visitors, are some of the actions included in the proposed management plan for the site.

The Site is managed by the City of Edinburgh Council in partnership with Historic Environment Scotland and Edinburgh World Heritage and the partners continue to work together to ensure that the plan for the next five years will protect the integrity of the built environment while at the same time ensuring it can operate as a thriving city centre.

A summary document on the full plan has been produced highlighting people’s views on six different themes and future actions to ensure improvements continue to be made in the Site going forward. The six themes are care and maintenance of buildings and streets, control and guidance, awareness of the World Heritage Site, contribution of new development, visitor management and influence and sense of control.

The consultation runs until Monday 5 June.
