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 your views on the draft approach to planning for a mix of uses in Stockbridge town centre. 

You Said

272 responses were received.   Responses in general showed broad support for the approach set out on the basis that greater flexibility will enhance and maintain vitality, viability and occupancy rates. Further comments were received covering a broad range of issues within the town centre.    

We Did

Comments received on the approach to planning for a mix of uses have been considered in the finalisation of the Town Centre Supplementary Guidance which was approved at Housing and Economy Committee on 2 November 2017. A summary of comments received and a response to these is set out within the Committee Report.  Comments have been shared with other Council services. 

The Supplementary Guidance will be used to determine planning applications and help deliver the Council’s wider placemaking and sustainability aims.
