The purpose of this community led initiative is the regeneration of Dean Valley, Edinburgh’s picturesque 18th century valley. to re-interpret the meaning of the valley and bring it up to a standard of management that would be expected within Edinburgh’s World Heritage site.

The project hopes to renovate the linear public park along the Water of Leith for the community & visitors, with the potential to create an interpretation centre & café, water turbine for power generation & income stream to enable ongoing maintenance.

Edinburgh World Heritage has helped to fund a conservation statement for the Dean Valley, as part of the initiative. The statement gives an overview of its main features andits social history, assesses its cultural significance, exisiting policies and manangement issues and suggests conservation policies and actions for the future.
