A total of 10,261 responses were received to the two-month long consultation, which closed on 31 January 2022. 
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, measures included reduced 20mph and 40mph speed limits, new cycle lanes, wider footways and parking suspensions. 
A West Lothian Council spokesperson said: "Thanks everyone who completed the Spaces for People consultation, we appreciate that so many people took the time to share their views.
"The responses are currently being analysed by council officers, and will be part of a report that will be presented to a meeting of the full West Lothian Council in March 2022. 
"Elected members will then have the chance to vote on whether all, or any, of the temporary measures should be retained."
