Area development frameworks

An Area Development Framework (ADF) sets out a vision for a distinct part of the city. It looks at developments, plans and hopes for these areas. The frameworks then look at how these areas fit into the wider vision for the city.

We have ADFs for two parts of the city

  • City Centre Southern Arc
  • Waterfront and Leith.

These were developed through working with a range of people.

City Centre Southern Arc

Planning Committee approved the ADF for the City Centre Southern Arc in March 2012.

A summary of the consultation was produced and possible projects were discussed at a later event. Download presentations from the event below.

Waterfront and Leith

We formed a final version of the Waterfront and Leith Area Development Framework after meeting with stakeholders from across the area,. This was approved in October 2011.
