Original Edinburgh is a collaborative business improvement project which empowers business to take a leading role in the success of Edinburgh’s iconic Old Town. Our ambition is to work together to deliver a varied package of investment to create a unique cultural, retail and hospitality experience, which optimises the use of our public space, for workers, the local community and visitors.

Original Edinburgh 1/2 Day Workshops

Original Edinburgh, in partnership with Keep Scotland Beautiful, aims to engage with businesses in the local area to better understand the challenges and opportunities our public realm faces today.

We will be hosting two workshops to gather your thoughts and feelings on the local area to identify strengths and priorities for improvement.

Reviewing your feedback, we will create a report celebrating local strengths, and outlining how, collaboratively, we can work towards improving place.
