Student Housing views required by Council
EDINBURGH LOCAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN – YOUR VIEWS ON STUDENT HOUSING
The Council is looking for your views on how it manages the housing requirements of the city’s growing number of students. We are specifically looking at:
- the growth of learning opportunities in the city;
- meeting the needs for student housing through purpose-built student accommodation; and
- how this accommodation is spread across the city.
We have prepared a paper, showing the background research on this issue, asking nine questions. The answers we receive from you will inform the content of draft planning guidance on student housing and we will be seeking views on this later this year.
The paper is available for your comments on the Council’s Consultation Hub at https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/studenthousing from Monday 16 March until Friday 24 April 2015.
