We’re creating a welcoming, safe, better connected and sustainable space that will embrace and enhance the much-loved heritage of George Street, Castle Street, Frederick Street and Hanover Street.

Our vision is to provide a great place that everyone can enjoy and benefit from, which supports our drive to be net zero carbon by 2030 and helps the city’s economic recovery.

People are at the heart of this key part of Edinburgh’s City Centre Transformation, whether a resident or there to work, visit, shop, cycle to and through, socialise or simply pause for a while.

Friendly, safe and accessible. Balancing the needs of different users without compromise on ambition and quality.
Enhancing heritage. Public realm improvements and reduced traffic will enhance this world heritage site.
Better environment. A clean, green city supporting the ambition to be net zero by 2030.
Building a better Edinburgh for us all. Supporting economic recover and the overall City Vision 2050.
