Edinburgh is an international financial centre with a world-class commercial property portfolio to match.

Demand for prime sites remains high, creating opportunities for investors and developers to capitalise on Edinburgh’s rapid growth and emerging reputation as a global centre for technology, data science and life sciences, as well as traditional strengths in financial services.

Planning and Building

The City of Edinburgh Council offers an online Planning and Building Standards Portal, which allows users to submit, view and track the progress of current planning and building warrant applications. Other features include advice and guidance on planning and building standards and a statutory notice search service.

Users can also access the Council's property enquiry service, including area search, which supports conveyancing in the city. New features will include interactive maps allowing users to check whether planning permission is required for developments on their own property.
