The Planning and Development Process in Edinburgh and the role of Community Councils and the wider community.

If the City of Edinburgh Council wishes to encourage and foster the democratic involvement of Community Councils in the planning process and indeed the participation of the wider community, whether activists and representatives of associations in the area or the concerned general public, it needs to facilitate a number of improvements in all stages of the process.

This includes the public consultations and exhibitions prior to submission of a planning application, the planning application process and the submission of comments, the post planning
approval stage where a number of important documents are fed into the planning system and the development construction period itself.

EACC belongs to every Edinburgh Community Council

Its aim is to provide support, advise and give a collective voice for community councils when facing the challenges community councillors encounter on an almost daily basis. No one person is more important than any other. All community councils have a voice on the EACC!!
