new set of natural neighbourhoods for Edinburgh

The City of Edinburgh Council thank everyone who took part in their natural neighbourhoods consultation. They received thousands of responses using online surveys, a telephone survey and face-to-face methods. 

In a competition run jointly with Our Town Stories and Capital Collections  five lucky entrants won fabulous framed prints of their chosen “patch”.

The Council approved a new set of natural neighbourhoods for the city in September which you can view on an interactive mapThese boundaries will be used by the Council and its partners to plan services, consultations and inform policy and strategy development.
