City Plan 2030 – next steps

City Plan 2030 has taken another significant step forward after agreement by the Councillors on the Planning Committee on Wednesday 30 November.

The proposed Plan was presented to Councillors at Planning Committee to decide on whether to submit the plan to Scottish Ministers for examination.

Councillors from across the political groups voted unanimously in favour of submitting the plan and congratulated planning officers and all those who contributed to the plan by concluding the session with a rare committee occurrence of a round of applause.

Councillors gave praise to the quality of the plan and commended the scale of the work that had been undertaken to produce such an ambitious document. Councillors recognised the capability of the plan to usher in a sustainable and modern future for Edinburgh, with comments of support from across the board over the need to progress the plan and see it adopted.

Who we are

We are a group of local residents that meet on a monthly basis and we act as voices for our local area of Morningside.

Community Councils are created by national legislation and administered by local authorities.  There are over 40 CCs in Edinburgh. We act on behalf of local people to represent their views and promote our community. Our members are elected by residents or nominated by local organisations.

We are non-party-political. Our local political representatives (Ward Councillors, MP, MSPs and MEP) are ex-officio members. They have no vote on the CC but we rely a lot on their help and advice.

What we do

We try to represent all the residents in Morningside. We talk to the City Council and other public bodies about local problems and try to get them resolved. So if you are bothered about anything, from uneven pavements to policing, contact us or come to a meeting and tell us about it. We try to take the majority view about local issues, but you can help by telling us what you think.
