City Plan 2030

We are preparing a new Local Development Plan for Edinburgh called City Plan 2030. This will set out policies and proposals for development in Edinburgh between 2020 and 2030.

The timetable for preparing the plan and details on how you can get involved in preparing City Plan 2030 is set out in the development plan scheme. The most recent development plan scheme is from August 2019

Having given consideration to the timing of the General Election and discussed with this with senior Council officers, we are delaying taking the Choices for City Plan 2030 document to Planning Committee. We now aim to do this in January and will confirm dates for committee and for a revised consultation/engagement schedule as soon as possible. This is to avoid the messages and issues which Choices will be looking at being lost in the election period. Therefore please bear in mind that the schedule of events set out in the Development Plan Scheme approved in August will change and we will notify you of new dates and times as quickly as we can.
