Falkirk Council Local Plan
Bo'ness Summary Edition
(including Muirhouses & Blackness)
Falkirk Council has produced a draft Local Plan for the whole area and is consulting local communities, businesses, agencies and other interested parties on its content. 

The new plan will replace the current framework of eight Local Plans with a single document which will guide development and land use in the area up to at least 2012.

The Council wants to hear your views on what they are proposing to put in the Local Plan. Prior to preparing the draft plan, they consulted with communities in summer 2002. Now, before they finalise the plan, they are going out to consultation again and are asking for views to be submitted by FrIday 6th February 2004.

Workshops were held across the Council area to explain and discuss the draft plan. The relevant workshop for Bo'ness was:
Bo’ness/ Blackness/ Muirhouses Wednesday, 3rd December 2003, 7.30 p.m. in Boness Library.
It's our town - make your views known!
