We are delighted to announce that planning permission has been granted for the West Lothian Cycle Circuit. Thank you to everyone who has helped contribute throughout the whole planning application process.
All efforts are now on securing the remaining funds for the Cycle Circuit to progress to tendering, procurement and construction. The target is to commence construction by April 2019, with the 6-month build completing October 2019.
The circuit will be a fabulous community facility for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the benefits of cycling. And not forgetting it will also offer a traffic-free workout option for runners and joggers.
Future phases of development within the site are also included within the planning permission. This includes a wheeled park area, for skateboards, bikes and scooters, plus a suite of athletic track and field facilities consisting of a sprint track, high jump, long jump, javelin and shot putt areas. All very exciting! Once funding is in place for the cycle circuit the Linlithgow Community Development Trust is looking forward to working with local children and young people, schools, Linlithgow’s Young People Project, the Linlithgow Athletics Club and others to progress these projects.
