Spaces for People consultation

A number of temporary measures were introduced in West Lothian during 2020 to support people to walk, cycle or wheel for essential trips and exercise during the Covid-19 pandemic. Funded by the Scottish Government's Spaces for People programme, other measures included wider footways and parking suspensions. 

A two-month consultation has been launched from 1 December 2021 to ask for views of the public and community groups on whether some or all of the Spaces for People measures should be retained after the temporary period.

To take part in the consultation, please visit Space for People survey (opens new window). Please allow at least five minutes to complete the survey. 

A West Lothian Council spokesperson said: "We would encourage as many people as possible to take part in the consultation and share their views on whether the temporary Spaces for People measures should be retained.

"We understand some local residents have strong views on the measures such as 20mph and 40mph speed limits and new cycle lanes, and completing the survey will make sure your views are considered. 

"All responses will be included in a report to a meeting of the full West Lothian Council in March 2022, where elected members will vote on whether the range of measures are to be kept."
