Whitburn and Blackburn
The Whitburn and Blackburn ward consists of Whitburn, Blackburn, East Whitburn, Greenrigg and Seafield.
Locality Planning is being developed across West Lothian within each multi-member ward. This process involves partner agencies from the public, private and voluntary sectors working together with communities to jointly plan local services. Locality Planning has a particular focus on addressing the key priorities within a local area.
Local Area Committees have been established in every ward. These Committees will be a forum through which local issues can be discussed and will encourage discussion between local members, local officers and the wider community, playing a key role in Locality Planning.
Whitburn and Blackburn's Local Area committee members are: Councillor Jim Dickson, Councillor Mary Dickson; Councillor George Paul (Chair); Councillor Barry Robertson (Vice Chair).
A Locality Plan for Whitburn and Blackburn will be developed which will detail those key priorities specific to this area and the ways in which organisations will work together with the community to tackle these issues.
