The Edinburgh standards for urban design
Edinburgh : Standards for Urban Design
The Council has recently (August 2003) prepared a report to Planning Committee on Urban Design Guidelines for Edinburgh.
A great deal of urban design advice has now been produced from a variety of sources
including the Scottish Executive. This document translates that advice into the Edinburgh context.
A user-friendly text is employed, illustrating principles with drawings and photographs of environments in the city.
The Edinburgh Standards for Urban Design underpin the Council’s commitment to take design matters seriously
