The Community Council is notified of planning applications and takes an interest in them and in the National, Regional and Local Plans which underlie their outcome. Some recent applications are shown below. The links (in red) go relevant papers including planning applications on the CEC planning portal.

Click HERE for recent planning applications in our area; this list is updated every week if there are new applications in our patch (last update  20/2/18). And HERE and HERE are useful doors into the City of Edinburgh Planning and Building Standards service.

In 2015 the Scottish Government initiated an Independent Review of Planning. Responses to various questions were sought by 1st December. HERE is the submission we made after seeking your comments.  HERE is the published report of the review (May 2016) and HERE is the government response (July 2016). HERE  is our response (3rd April) to the consultation paper published in Jan 2017.  This matter is now with the Scottish Ministers – HERE is their position paper and  here is a link to an analysis of the responses to it. HERE is a link to the expected parliamentary bill. Comments are sought by 2 Feb and the LDCC hopes to comment in consultation with the Edinburgh Association of CCs.
