WE NEED YOUR VIEWS – Edinburgh City Centre Transformation Project

We’re writing to encourage pupils and parents to have their say on the future of Edinburgh as part of the Edinburgh City Centre Transformation Project.

We’re looking for as many people as possible – young and old – to share their views on plans to improve public spaces and prioritise travel on foot, by bike and on public transport in the city centre.

A specially created children’s version of the main survey is available:

  • Open now until Friday 28 June 2019
  • Easy and quick to complete – for ages 4-16
  • Available online here
  • Paper copies available on request
  • Completely anonymous unless optional competition entered

As part of the survey, children are encouraged to upload their drawings and a prize is on offer for the best submission:

  • Up to £100 of books can be won for the pupil’s school
  • Competition deadline Friday 21 June 2019
  • See terms and conditions for more details


Teachers and parents are also encouraged to have their say – the full questionnaire is open until Friday 28 June and accessible here.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you would be willing to take part and if you have any questions.

Yours faithfully,

City Centre Transformation Project Team.
