West Lothian Council receives a number of requests of a similar nature for information which relates to Business Rate accounts (non-domestic properties).

To address these requests we are now publishing a list of live business rates properties within West Lothian, this list contains the following information:

We will publish this information on a quarterly basis at the end of March, June, September and December.  We will not provide individual responses to requests during the year for similar information but will re-direct requests to our published list of reports held on this webpage.
