The Living Streets Consultation was originally held in 2010 to look at walking in and around the village. Many issues were raised about the state of pathways and much more. For further information see www.livingstreets.org.uk

Living Streets liaised with West Lothian Council officers to take forward issues raised and some public realm improvements had already been made. Well done to everyone who was involved.

The local walking group, the Fauldhouse Footers, was established in April 2009, with support from Rachel Sedman, F&BV CDT’s Development Worker, and partner agencies, including the Put Your West Foot Forward local initiative.

Stronger Together Group
