New Local Development Plan
The City of Edinburgh is embarking on the much delayed and lengthy process of developing a new Local Development Plan, which has been further delayed by the election. The detailed timetable for this exercise has been scrapped and we are still awaiting a new one. This new LDP will ultimately replace the current plan, adopted in 2016.

The process starts with what used to be called the Main Issues Report, now styled Choices for City Plan 2030. Because of the delay, this will not be published until January. It will set out the main issues and alternative solutions. The publication will be followed by an 8 week consultation period, starting 31 Jan.  At a briefing meeting we were told that most of the choices will be hard ones; there is little spare infrastructure left.

We expect that, as we did for the 2016 plan, we will be organising one or more drop-in sessions to hear your views after we have all seen the proposals and the reasons for them. The City is also organising events; the time timetable for these was overtaken by the election and a new timetable is still awaited. We will link to the Choices document from here when it is published.  SEE TOP OF PAGE.

Click HERE for our summer newsletter. It was distributed in the Gracemount area and paper copies were available in Liberton Kirk Centre and elsewhere. We didn’t manage to produce an autumn newsletter because of our re-election but hope to have something for you in the winter. Links to earlier newsletters are under the Minutes tab.
