Have your say on the future of town centres

Local residents, community groups and businesses are being invited to have their say on proposed new guidance covering food and drink and other non-retail uses in Midlothian’s town centres.

Vibrant town centres

"The draft guidance has been produced as part of a commitment made following approval of the Midlothian Local Development Plan 2017," explained the council's cabinet member for communities, Councillor Russell Imrie. "It includes information on the council’s approach to creating successful and vibrant town centres as people’s needs and shopping habits change."

Future development

The supplementary guidance also provides advice on what types of development would be supported in and outwith town centres.

The consultation started on Tuesday 28 August and will run for six weeks until Wednesday 10 October 2018
