The City of Edinburgh Council is working in partnership with Edinburgh World Heritage and Historic Environment Scotland to develop a strategy for the protection and maintenance of setted streets.
Stone setts add significant historic and cultural value to the streets of Edinburgh and are an important feature of our cityscape.
We have a duty to protect the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site, Conservation Areas and other historic parts of the city. This protection includes the setting of Edinburgh’s many listed buildings, where setted streets are an integral part of their identity and authenticity.
However, when setted streets are not properly maintained, they can have implications for walking, cycling and driving. Damaged setts are often replaced with alternative materials like tarmac as a temporary solution. This can result in an unsightly and uncared for appearance.
To help inform the strategy we’d like to know what you think about setted streets and their value to the city. We are also interested to know what impediments, if any, you think setted streets can have on our movement.
You can give us your views until Wednesday 11 October 2017 on our Consultation Hub.

(with apologies for the short notice but we’ve only just been told about this)
Victoria Primary School parents’ council has organised a hustings on Monday 24th April with the candidates for Forth and Leith wards, to discuss the future of the school and wider community issues.
While everyone is welcome to attend, an idea of numbers would help if possible but realise this is short notice.
The hustings itself finishes at 9, and we will be following it up with a chat with parents about the parent council.
Monday 24th April, from 7pm, Newhaven Church, Craighall Road
Refreshments and crêche will be provided
