The Development and Transport Policy and Development Scrutiny Panel supported submitting planning guidance for the Vennel to Council Executive for final approval.

The opening of the Linlithgow Partnership Centre has resulted in a number of properties in and around the Vennel area becoming vacant and surplus to requirements.

The guidance sets out potential uses for the site and a number of matters which would have to be addressed in any future redevelopment. Uses could include a mix of residential, retail, hotel, restaurants and/or business use, such as office space.

Executive councillor for development and transport Cathy Muldoon said: “The Vennel is a high-profile area at the heart of Linlithgow, and it’s important that careful consideration is taken over its future. The planning guidance produced will assist any marketing of the site and inform any development going forward.”
