We need your help to influence and shape the future of council services in West Lothian


Like other local authorities in Scotland, West Lothian Council faces constrained funding and substantial cost increases in the next five years. This means that the council, along with the West Lothian community, will have to make difficult decisions about local services in order to address a funding gap of £38.4 million.

Reductions in local government public spending have impacted council services for over 15 years and the Council has made a total of £150 million worth of savings since 2007/08.

In preparation for the challenges ahead, we want to work with you – our community and partners – in shaping the future of Council services in West Lothian. This consultation is the first in a series of planned engagements. Your feedback will be used to help us become more sustainable, address the funding gap and meet the challenges ahead.
