Buildings are listed by Historic Scotland for their special architectural or historic interest on behalf of the Scottish Government. The aim of listing such buildings is to protect or enhance their special character by affording them statutory protection. The principles for listing buildings are fairly complex and there is no right of appeal against the Scottish Governments decision to list a property.\\nListed buildings are listed in 3 categories - A, B and C.\\nCategory A listed buildings are of national or international importance.\\nCategory B listed buildings are of regional importance.\\nCategory C buildings are of local importance.\\nA building's listing covers its interior, exterior and any object or structure fixed to a building or which falls within the curtilage of such a building, forming part of the land since before 1 July 1948.

The shops database is a record of a comprehensive survey of all shops in Edinburgh which was carried out in September / October 2010, based on a mixture of site inspection and records from the Lothian Valuation Joint Board (LVJB). It updates similar surveys which were done in 1986, 1996 and 2004, to provide a long-term perspective on retail change in the city.

While Royal Mail (RM) allocate and maintain postcodes for the purposes of delivering mail, National Records of Scotland (NRS) create and maintain digital postcode geographies to support the production of high quality statistics. This dataset provides the grid reference (or centroid) for each live postcode (e.g. KY7 6DG) in Scotland. The grid reference is assigned by choosing either the building nearest to the centre of the most populous part of the postcode, or the grid reference from Gridlink®. Postcode grid references are used in point in polygon processes to allocate each postcode to a set of higher area geographies (e.g. Health Boards). Grid references are published twice a year as part of the Scottish Postcode Directory (SPD) which should be considered the definitive source for postcode geographies in Scotland. Note the published version of the SPD does not include Royal Mail information on Delivery Point Count (DPC), Delivery Point Count Non-Residential (DPCNR) or Household Count (HC). Those interested in this information should enquire with email@example.com.

Updates are normally published in the spring, and reflective of the previous September.

The Sectoral Marine Plan aims to identify the most sustainable plan options for the future development of commercial-scale offshore wind energy in Scotland, including deep water wind technologies and covers both Scottish inshore and offshore waters (extending out to the Exclusive Economic Zone limit). The Sectoral Marine seeks to contribute to the achievement of Scottish and UK energy and climate change policy objectives and targets, through the provision of a spatial strategy to inform the seabed leasing process for commercial offshore wind energy in Scottish waters, which: - Minimises the potential adverse effects on other marine users, economic sectors and the environment resulting from further commercial-scale offshore wind development; and - Maximises opportunities for economic development, investment and employment in Scotland, by identifying new opportunities for commercial scale offshore wind development, including deeper water wind technologies. The draft Plan Options ("DPO") provide the spatial footprint for this Sectoral Marine Plan.
The open space audit was carried out in 2009 as part of the open space strategy. The Open Space Strategy was approved by the Council's Policy and Strategy and Planning Committees at the end of September 2010. The preparation of an open space strategy is a recent requirement of national planning policy, requiring the creation of an audit, a strategy and action plans. The implementation of the strategy and action plans will be monitored and every five years, from 2015, the strategy will be reviewed and updated. Further information can be found in the open space audit at http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/downloads/file/1286/open_space_audit.
