Shaping our city for future generations

Choices for City Plan and draft City Mobility Plan – consultation update (25 March 2020)

We know the current health emergency is affecting everyone. We want everyone to have a chance to give their views on two important plans that will shape how we live and work in the city in the future. You can now respond to Choices for City Plan and to the draft City Mobility Plan, and associated environmental reports, until 30 April 2020.



We’ve set an ambitious target for Edinburgh to be carbon neutral by 2030. We want everyone in every community to benefit from the city’s success, and make neighbourhoods great places for people to live in.

To achieve our ambitious target, we need to make changes to how we manage and develop our city. This will be challenging. We’ve already approved a programme to transform our city centre so that people come first. We’ve committed to building 20,000 affordable and low-cost homes by 2027. We’re committed to improving air quality by introducing a low emission zone. These are just three of the many ways in which we’re working to meet our bold ambitions.

We want to know what you think

We’re developing two long-term strategies which will set out the way we shape and transform our city. We need to know what you think of our proposed plans:

  • Choices for City Plan 2030 sets out options for how we could develop our city sustainably over the next ten years
  • City Mobility Plan proposes radical changes as to how people and goods move around our city.
