We’re pleased to share the Our Edinburgh Neighbourhood local report.

In summer 2022, we ran a pilot project trialing an urban room in Edinburgh along with exhibitions, events and surveys to understand how communities can participate, intervene and propose change in the city.

We wanted to know about the places people value both in their neighbourhoods and Edinburgh’s city centre. We used an accessible online application featuring an immersive mapping tool to share what participants valued in their neighbourhood. In Central Edinburgh we opened an Urban Room, part meeting place, part exhibition; a resource to gather and share information. We also worked with neighbourhoods in Liberton and Restalrig to understand how our themes can work with local priorities.

This report describes the information and insight we’ve gathered to help us all understand neighbourhoods, engagement in the planning process and how urban rooms can work best to nurture and sustain community co-creation.
