Whitburn Partnership Centre
Currently under construction this Centre is located in the heart of Whitburn.
Partnership working brings together a range of council services and partner organisations providing a "one stop shop" in the heart of local communities. Delivered throughout West Lothian, each facility breathes new life into prominent, historic buildings or deliverers purpose-built, multi-functional buildings with maximised accommodation and improved public access but also drive efficiency in overall service delivery (shared reception, offices, rooms, staff, etc.)
West Lothian Council has Partnership Centres across West Lothian, including Livingston, Armadale, Bathgate, Blackburn, Broxburn, East Calder, Fauldhouse, Linlithgow and on completion Whitburn.
The first Partnership Centre in West Lothian opened at Strathbrock in Broxburn in 2005 and the model of partnership centres has since been followed by other local authorities across Scotland.
There have been clear and measurable benefits to the West Lothian community. Access to a variety of services from one location within each settlement is considerably more efficient in terms of providing and receiving services thus, ensuring our citizens receive a comprehensive and contemporary customer experience.
Progress Update - February 2020
Work is progressing. 'The Scottish Power (SPEN) works to divert the cables were completed in January. The Contractor is now going through the process of re-engaging with their sub-Contractors to get them back on site to continue with the foundations. This work will re-start this month.
In the meantime the re-roofing to the existing East Main Street building continues. Slating to half of the building is almost complete and new flashings along with a breathable roofing membrane are in place safeguarding it for the future. Stone repairs and replacement are on-going. '
Your key community organisations meet every few months to discuss the project progress and advise partners at West Lothian Council on related community matters. These groups inform and ensure we are keeping the wider community up to date. Whitburn Community Development Trust lead on these communications. Remember if you want to know more you can contact them locally and they will help. There is also the Whitburn Partnership Centre email address for enquiries.
Workshops have been held locally on the museum development within the project and these have been very successful. Look out for notices of further opportunities to get involved.
