(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council’s head of economic development)
Edinburgh Council is consulting on the draft Leith Economic Framework. This will last 8 weeks, then a finalised version will go to Edinburgh Council’s Economy Committee on 28 April 2015. Edinburgh Council will then develop the “Priority Areas for Council Action” into an action plan with allocated responsibilities and timescales, to fit with the timetable for the overall operational plan for the Economic Development Service.
Alongside exploration of alternative options, Edinburgh Council will continue to examine options for the Leith Docks area as a hub for renewables manufacturing.
