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. 
The two-month consultation on whether some or all of the Spaces for People measures should be retained after the temporary period closes on 31 January. To take part, please visit Space for People survey (opens new window) allowing at least five minutes to complete the survey. 
A West Lothian Council spokesperson said: "Thanks to everyone who has already shared their views by completing the survey.
"We would encourage anyone who has not yet completed the survey and wishes their views to be considered to fill in the survey, which can be completed in an individual capacity or on behalf of an organisation you represent.
"Your views are important, and will be included as part of a report to a meeting of the full West Lothian Council in March 2022, where elected members will vote on whether any of the measures are to be kept."
