Shaping our city for future generations

City Plan 2030 and City Mobility Plan

City Mobility Plan 2021-2030

Following extensive consultation, the City Mobility Plan 2021-2030 is being considered at the Transport and Environment Committee on 19 February The plan is central to a clean, connected and net zero carbon future. It will help people make sustainable choices about how they move around the city, through improving walking, cycling and wheeling options and creating better links to public transport. It replaces Edinburgh’s Local Transport Strategy 2014-2019. 

City Plan 2030

As City Plan 2030 is our local development strategy, it will go through the next formal stage. More details to follow.

Background

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.
