West Lothian Traditional Town Centres (Armadale, Bathgate, Broxburn & Uphall, Linlithgow and Whitburn) - Public Realm Consultation Survey.

West Lothian town centres have continued to face retail and economic pressures similar to other town centres across Scotland and the UK due to changing shopping habits and lifestyles. West Lothian Council seeks to promote and facilitate urban regeneration and investment in the county’s traditional town centres and with local stakeholders and community interests and has previously developed public realm strategies for physical improvement. The public realm incorporates all areas to which the public has ready access. This includes streets, lanes, vennels, squares, forecourts, parks and open spaces.

The Council’s Development & Transport Policy Development & Scrutiny Panel (PDSP) has considered 5 reports which review West Lothian’s traditional town centres in December 2020.

West Lothian Council is now seeking views on the proposed updates to the respective Action Plans and proposals for town centre public realm improvements.

For reference, these reports can be viewed on the council’s COINS website:
