This page is mainly intended as a ‘catch-all’ for important Spokes submissions relating to Edinburgh and not covered on the following pages…

  • Note that this page was only created in Sept 2015 so has nothing before that
  • We only show really important applications, not the many others that we comment on most weeks
  • If you have difficulty looking up planning applications, see here
