We have already received valuable feedback to the proposed enhancements for East Calder Park but would like to extend the survey completion deadline to 31 May 2018. If you previously completed a survey by 5 March then there is no need to do so again; your comments have already been recorded and considered.
Central Scotland Green Network Trust and West Lothian Council are working together to enhance East Calder Park. We are now seeking feedback from the public on different aspects of the existing and potential features within the Park.
Extensive community consultations were held in 2015 to identify a unified vision for the park. The results of the consultations can be found on the council’s webpage: www.westlothian.gov.uk/parkinfo. From this, it can be seen that the community’s overall vision is to give some definition to the park (entrances and signage), improve variety (different activities, variety of natural habitats and visual interest) and improve connections both through the park and with the surrounding area.
This feedback, along with more recent comments from stakeholders, has been considered and used to produce different possible layouts for improving the Park and incorporating future, adjacent proposals into its design. (Please note that all future developments are shown for illustrative purposes only and are not confirmed/finalised including the proposed 3G pitch. A separate consultation will be carried out by WLC on the 3G pitch in the future). Various layout options can be viewed here:
We would be grateful if you could please provide feedback on these draft layouts and proposals on a survey form which is found here by 31 May 2018. This will allow CSGNT and WLC to collate and consider the comments in order to prioritise preferred work for costing and detailed designs. Your comments are, therefore, important in shaping and developing the future of East Calder Park.
