WEST LOTHIAN LDP - Planning Guidance Consultation

It was agreed at the Development and Transport Policy Development and Scrutiny  Panel on Monday 8 August 2015 to consult on the following two documents. Responses need to be e-mailed to the council at DPgeneral@westlothian.gov.uk by close of play on Friday 4 November.

Health Impact Assessments Planning Guidance:
Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is a way to identify and improve the health consequences of any defined policy or proposed development, including unintended and unanticipated consequences. An HIA includes explicit consideration of how impacts may affect different groups in the population. It includes recommendations to mitigate any harm to health and enhance any benefits. An HIA should not only identify potential harms to be mitigated but should also identify and support positive aspects of a development that bring opportunities for good health.

Linlithgow Public Realm Design Guide (Planning Guidance):
The design guide establishes a vision for the public realm in Linlithgow, sets out best practice in promoting good quality urban design and sets out priorities for public realm improvements which can be addressed through capital investment in the town by the council and its partners.

Both can be viewed at the following link:
