The edge insulation is fitted around the timber plates which will form the internal walls.  It will stop the timber drawing the moisture out of the lime screed too quickly when it is laid, and also provide an expansion gap around the edge of the screed once it is dry.  It is also fitted around the external walls, (along with additional insulation), against the blockwork, to try and reduce heat loss.
