FOUR principles have been endorsed by city councillors to guide Edinburgh towards the year 2050.
The principles – fair, pioneering, welcoming and thriving – were endorsed by the Policy and Sustainability committee of the city council last week.
Says the city council, in a media release (here): “Produced by a steering group led by Lord Provost, Frank Ross, councillors had previously agreed that the four values were to be central to the council’s Adaptation and Renewal Programme.
“The steering group is currently developing a ‘vision charter’ for businesses and organisations to sign, committing to keeping the values central to their future plans. Once finalised, the charter will be signed by the Lord Provost on behalf of The City of Edinburgh Council.
“In addition to the formation of an annual youth council to provide oversight on progress and delivery of the 2050 Edinburgh City Vision, the steering group will be asked to consider measures for the city’s success in meeting the vision’s aspirations.”
The release adds: “The 2050 Edinburgh City Vision principles were shaped by over 22,000 public consultation responses from residents across the city – the largest such exercise ever undertaken by the council.”
