The Council is now consulting on proposals for a new service to support owners in maintaining properties in the city with shared areas such as roofs and stairwells.

As well as an online survey, there will be a range of other ways for people to have their say including neighbourhood meetings and discussions with organisations with an interest in the Edinburgh 's property and housing.

Cllr Alasdair Rankin, Finance and Resources convener, said: "It's really important that the feedback we get is robust and represents a wide range of opinions from interested parties across the city. We are seeking comments from owners, residents and all those involved in the property profession from heritage bodies to letting agents. I strongly encourage everyone to have their say and let others know about our consultation. Maintaining the quality of Edinburgh's buildings is a shared responsibility and we must go forward with a full understanding of how the public and professionals view the future of property conservation in the capital."

Have your say in the online survey. The consultation ends on 31 October 2012.

For a summary of what we're consulting on and why please see our consultation pages. This includes information on other ways to send us your views.
