Abstract/Description

The on—going review of structure plans in the
United Kingdom (UK) has highlighted the attractiveness
of new settlements as an alternative
to town cramming, peripheral expansion and
urban sprawl. This paper examines the argument
for new settlements made by the Lothian
Structure Plan Review (Lothian Regional
Council, 1993). It goes on to establish how the
experiments going on in Edinburgh’s South
East Wedge are transforming the new settlement
phenomenon in to the search for a plan—
led, environmentally friendly and sustainable
pattern of settlement. It draws attention to the
Interim Development Framework put in place
to support the plan—led, environmentally
friendly experiment and the settlement model it
adopts for such purposes.
