Linlithgow - A Plan for the Future 2015 - 2030

Linlithgow Civic Trust commented on the proposed West Lothian Local Development Plan (and on the Main Issues Report that preceded it) with the view that the policy of restraint for Linlithgow should be replaced by a comprehensive local area plan that addresses the current and anticipated infrastructure issues before any development takes place. This plan, "Linlithgow - A Plan for the Future 2015- 2030" was developed on behalf of the Linlithgow community by the Linlithgow Planning Forum, of which the Trust is a member and is available for download:
