20-minute neighbourhoods

Our vision

Our vision is to enable a net zero Edinburgh where everyone can live well locally.

We are working in partnership with local communities across the city to create healthier, greener, thriving and more inclusive neighbourhoods. These are places where everyone can meet most of their daily needs within a short walk, wheel or cycle of their home. Our aim is to create places where most of people’s daily needs can be met within a 20-minute round trip.

We need this level of ambition to help us to create good places to live and work, end poverty and become net zero by 2030.
