Consultation on ensuring the prosperity of the Edinburgh & South East Scotland City Region

I am writing to draw your attention to a major consultation that will launch on Monday 14th June with a view to informing the economic future of the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region.

The Regional Prosperity Framework is a draft plan for building the economy of the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region. It looks at everything from transport & housing to education & digital inclusion; to economic development & climate change. In advance of the launch of the consultation, background to the development of the Framework, together with the draft that will be consulted on, can be found at

The consultation, when it launches on Monday 14th June, will be available at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/ESESRegionalProsperity.  This website will outline a number of different ways to get involved over the course of the consultation period. I hope that you will consider taking part in the consultation.  I would draw your attention to the closing date for written responses, which is Monday 26th July. 

The consultation is relevant to individuals, communities, businesses and other organisations, professional bodies and charities. We should therefore also be grateful for your assistance in helping to promote the consultation to relevant interests in your area. 

We should, of course, be happy to arrange an interactive session with the Edinburgh Association of Community Councils if that should be welcome.  If that would be of interest to you, or should you welcome any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me direct at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
