Edinburgh: Connecting our city, transforming our places - Home page

The City of Edinburgh Council is committed to delivering a more active and better connected city, a healthier environment, a transformed city centre and neighborhood streets, which put people at the heart of the capital.

Through Connecting our City, Transforming our Places in 2018, we tested ideas raised by stakeholders and community representatives with the public across the wider city and region. 88% of people supported change to mobility and place quality in the city.

From this common starting point, three interlinked approaches are being taken forward:

  • Edinburgh City Centre Transformation – an ambitious plan for a people-focused capital city centre supporting community, cultural and economic life.
  • City Mobility Plan – improving the way people and goods move around the city and Edinburgh’s links with the growing city region.
  • Low Emission Zones – improving air quality in the city by tackling traffic pollution.
