Future Edinburgh

We are shaping our city for future generations

Edinburgh is one of the best cities in the world in which to live, work and study. Like other cities, we are feeling the impacts of

  • climate change
  • poverty and health inequalities in our communities
  • demand for new homes
  • traffic congestion
  • poor air quality in some areas.

As our city grows, we want people, goods and services to be able to move into and around Edinburgh in a way that is

  • safe
  • sustainable
  • efficient
  • can benefit everyone.

We have an ambitious 2030 target to lower the number of kilometres travelled by car in Edinburgh by 30%. Edinburgh also aims to achieve Net Zero status by 2030.

We are working hard to deliver a range of projects which will help us meet our objectives.
