Eliburn Park Needs Assessment

Client
West Lothian Council, Development & Regulatory Services


Project Description:
The study involved consultation with the public and other stakeholders to assess the need for a park and sports facility at Eliburn, Livingston. The main aim of the study was to establish the need for a District wide and local park, how much land would be required to meet these needs and assess what capital / revenue investment would be required.

A well attended public drop-in participatory meeting was held in the Almond Valley Heritage Centre (200 visitors to the exhibition). A preferred option was developed from the outcome of the public meeting, stakeholder consultation and questionnaire responses. Further consultation was undergone and the results worked incorporated into a masterplan for the park, including; informal family recreation and play, an area set aside for a future sports facility, passive recreation opportunities and a walking / cycling path hierarchy. The park is intended to be well maintained and well lit, and create a balance between protection of existing habitats and providing high amenity value for park users.

Key Services Provided:
Public consultation meeting, WDC Officer / stakeholder consultation, sketch design, masterplanning, cost plan and presentation boards.
