The City of Edinburgh has published a 10-year plan to deliver a better connected, net zero carbon transport system and a healthier environment and more inclusive capital.

Alongside the adopted Local Development Plan and the emerging City Plan 2030, the City Mobility Plan also champions 20-minute neighbourhoods, a recognised concept where local services are within a 20-minute walk of a person’s front door. It goes even further to envision neighbourhoods where people’s daily needs can be met within a 10-minute walk or wheel from their house.

Subject to approval at a special meeting of the Transport and environment Committee on 19 February, the plan will replace Edinburgh’s Local Transport Strategy and set out a strategic approach to the “sustainable and effective” movement of people and goods to and around the city over the next decade.
