We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

What you thought of our proposed amendments to the Edinburgh Design Guidance, and how we could improve it further.

You Said

Feedback tended to concentrate on the revised Parking Standards, and new Guidance for Build to Rent housing, and clearly demonstrated net support for the proposals, though key concerns were raised.

We Did

The Edinburgh Design Guidance now better reflects and addresses the key concerns raised (for example, the explicit need for parking surveys to be undertaken by applicants to assess/reduce parking overspill onto surrounding streets). The key concerns, and how these would be mitigated, were presented to/discussed with the Planning Committee, prior to them approving the revised Edinburgh Design Guidance.  The revised guidance can be found on the Council website.

We Asked

What you thought of our proposed amendments to the Guidance for Householders and how we could improve it further.

You Said

Most feedback was supportive of the changes to the Guidance.  There were some suggestions for minor alterations and clarifications.

We Did

We reported the feedback and actions to the 17 August Planning Committee and made some amendments to the final version of the Guidance approved by Committee.  The Guidance is now approved and will be used to assist in assessing householder planning applications.  It can be viewed on the Council website.

We Asked

We asked for views on the proposed designs for cycle and walking improvements in Davidson's Mains Park

You Said

The majority of feedback was supportive or strongly supportive of the proposals. There were some suggested design alterations and clarifications posed. These are detailed in the consultation report which can be accessed below, along with the Council’s response to each of them.

We Did

The feedback to the scheme has been used to evolve and improve the design. Details of the design changes is included in the consultation report, which can be accessed via the link below or by using the contact details supplied.

We shall consult again when the detailed design drawings are ready. The consultation shall be available online and via other forms if requested. All people who have asked to be kept informed about the scheme shall be alerted when the consultation opens.
