Edinburgh design guidance
The Edinburgh design guidance sets out our expectations for the design of new development, design of streets and parking standards in Edinburgh.
The guidance should be used as a basis for the planning and design of new development proposals and for all street design. It will be a material consideration in assessing planning applications.
