Regeneration Plans

The Community Empowerment Act 2015 states that all Community Planning Partnerships in Scotland must develop plans for those communities which experience the poorest outcomes. These plans must identify local priorities and detail actions to be taken to reduce inequalities. In West Lothian thirteen 'regeneration areas' have been identified. All of the identified regeneration areas have data zones within the bottom 20% of the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation, a database of information about communities across Scotland published by the Scottish Government.
