Fiona Hyslop MSP for the Linlithgow Constituency has written to the Chief Executive of West Lothian Council to raise concerns over the recent planning application (1097/FUL/21) regarding Wester Inch Village.
The planning application is for the erection of 5 commercial units, 46 residential properties, 15 flats and land for a future community facility in Wester Inch Village.
“Residents of Wester Inch Village have been waiting a long time for commercial units, and whilst it’s good news that commercial units are part of the planning application, the erection of more housing is an issue.
“Additional housing within Wester Inch will lead to more pressure on already limited resources, will reduce green space within the Village, and lead to increased traffic congestion”
“I have written to the Chief Executive of West Lothian Council to raise the concerns of residents, and I have asked that the planning application is amended to meet the needs of the Village.
