In celebrating James Craig New Town 250th anniversary. we ask ourselves what are we, the current generation, going to leave the next century? Are we planning a better future? Or are we just muddling along?
We need all to put our thoughts together coherently, and in working together, make a Vision for Edinburgh, so that we can look forwards towards a better planned and designed future, a sustainable future that takes care of our culture and heritage of many directions. This forum the EAA is leading the way for, asks that we put our professional knowledge to good use, make partnerships across the city with all other related professions and colleagues, and make our input heard and put into action.
These sessions have an eminent speaker and consultants to inspire and discuss all our ideas and thoughts in workshop format, put all of it on the table for a collation into a coherent strategy or charrette that can be submitted to the City of Edinburgh Council. I have tied up with the City of Edinburgh Council Chief Executive office to feed directly into their City Vision, and with the good will of Planning Transportation and all other departments of the Council, the efforts and input of our workshops will not be just talk, but put into action.
