Edinburgh Street Design

Edinburgh Street Design Guidance

The Edinburgh Street Design guidance factsheets form the detailed design manual referred to in chapter 4 of the Edinburgh Design Guidance.

What the guidance does

The guidance has been put in place to help deliver a world-class network of

  • vibrant
  • safe
  • attractive
  • effective 
  • enjoyable

streets in Edinburgh and brings together previously separate guidance on street design.

Who the guidance is for

This guidance sets out our design expectations and aspirations for streets within the city. It can be used by anyone who undertakes the following activities in relation to streets:

  • Planning
  • Altering
  • Designing
  • Managing
  • Maintaining
  • Constructing

Some of the detailed design manual factsheets are available now at the link below but there are several more that are still under development and these will be made available for use as soon as they are ready.
