    All these discussions are all good and well but the delivered final product is still very poor. Whether new housing or the infrastructure the urban design is not efficient, attractive or providing the lifestyle for people and businesses.
    There is definitely something wrong with build regulations from housing to road widths, cycle or for local businesses.
    We are not creating attractive, smart and efficient places & causing so much unproductivity and costs in the economy.
    Just look at Edinburgh’s infrastructure and it’s waterfront just awful.
    Sorry we have a very long way to go compared to many European countries.
    With many years of devolution I thought we would have been much better but sadly to little has changed.
