Welcome to our Edinburgh neighbourhood

This project is to find out what you think will make your voice more effective to engage and steer development in your Edinburgh neighbourhood. We’re exploring how both digital and online platforms can reach more people especially those who’ve been excluded in the past.

Tell us about Your Edinburgh Neighbourhood

We need your help not just telling us what’s important in your neighbourhood, but where and why. Go to our Quality of Life maps. Show us what’s vital and a real asset to your neighbourhood. Tell us  how well you think the consultation process works.

What was on?..What activities did we hold?

Our Exhibition in our Urban Room at Waverley Market is now closed. We hosted a range of events and activities not only in central Edinburgh but in local neighbourhoods too. Thanks to everyone who participated.

Our Urban Room and Exhibition

An urban room is a place people can use to have a part in redesigning and reimagining their city. ​ It ran between  13 June and 9 July, with the kind support of the Moorgarth Group and PM+U we're at Waverley Market. Groups could book our space for an activity free of charge.

Working in Your Neighbourhood

We also operated in local neighbourhoods in Edinburgh. We brought a portable exhibition about the project and how the idea of 20 minute neighbourhoods will change the way we see our city. ​You can still tell us about your area by putting down some digital pins and doing our survey.
