Consultation on a New Vision For Edinburgh

Residents, businesses and community groups will be asked to give their views on how the capital will look in 2050. The Edinburgh City Vision project aims to involve as many local people as possible in the new initiative.

Over the next two months, anyone who lives, works or studies in the city will be asked to give their opinions on Edinburgh's strong points, areas which should be improved, and what they would like to see in the city by 2050.

The information will be collated and published next year.

The City of Edinburgh Council's Chief Executive, Andrew Kerr, said: "As Scotland's capital city, we have much to be proud of and positive about but we need to start thinking seriously about what we want Edinburgh to look like in 10, 20, even 30 years' time ...

"...We're starting with a blank canvas. This will not be a Council vision, rather our role will be to facilitate and support citywide collaboration and debate. I want to ensure we take new approaches and make new partnerships now to ensure Edinburgh addresses the challenges of the future remains the envy of the world and offers a great quality of life in decades to come."
