George Street 2025

Closed 26 Mar 2021

Opened 25 Feb 2021


Thank you for taking the time to look at the proposals for George Street and First New Town. We hope you’re excited about the future for this iconic city centre street, which is part of Edinburgh’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 The Covid-19 pandemic has had a serious impact on our city centre and we hope that our investment plans for George Street and First New Town will encourage us all to get back to the city centre and enjoy all that it has to offer – and more!

Now you’ve seen the proposal, we’d love you to take part in our short survey to tell us what about George Street 2025 will encourage you to visit and how you’d travel to the re-designed street.
