Closed 11 Oct 2017

Opened 13 Sep 2017


The Council, in partnership with Historic Environment Scotland and Edinburgh World Heritage, is developing a strategy for the protection and management of setted streets in the city. A key part of this is gathering the views of the public on the value of setted streets and their contribution to Edinburgh’s cityscape.

Why We Are Consulting

Setts are an important feature of Edinburgh and have significant historic and cultural value. They do, however, have implications for the movement of pedestrians, cyclists and motor vehicles and require a range of measures for their conservation and maintenance.

The questions below aim to gather your views on these issues and help to develop our strategy for setted streets.
