Making Places – a Local Place Plan for Leith

Making Places is the first chapter of a new community generated Local Place Plan for Leith. For the plan to be the best, and most relevant it can be, we need input from everyone across the area.

Between June and October 2019, we have supported a total of 10 events in partnership with:

  • Leith Gala Day
  • Newkirkgate Shopping Centre
  • Dr Bells Family Centre
  • Leith Community Centre
  • Norton Park Center
  • Leith Central Community Council
  • Leith Links Community Council
  • Leith Harbour & Newhaven Community Council
  • Leith Trust


The Making Places Programme has been made posable through the dedicated support of a steering group of local residents and the talented help of the following organisations:

World Kitchen in Leith are a multi-cultural food collective based on the simple idea that food is the best way to bring people together. Combining home cooking with community they explore friendship, identity and belonging through food.

Biomorphis is an architecture & design practice dedicated to a sensitive approach to the built environment based on affordable systems, sustainability and art.

Here + Nowis a team of landscape architects, designers and photographers, offering co-design tools and solutions for landscape architecture with the aim of putting people at the heart of place & design.

Join in and have your say about where Leith goes from here.

All our events are free and open to all.

Making Places has been made posable with support from the Scottish Government, Open Project Funding from Creative Scotland and the City of Edinburgh Cultural Service.
