Kirknewton, West Lothian Background of the Plan ‘I Love Kirknewton’ and ‘Community Big Ideas’ campaigns The community of Kirknewton has prepared the Development Plan with the assistance of the KCDT and Tony Foster (Development Officer). The Plan was prepared following the extensive consultation with the community during early 2011 and has since been developed by a local steering group and Development Trust officers. The Community Consultation included: Meeting or contacting stakeholder groups in the village. An ‘I Love Kirknewton’ community consultation. A ‘Your Big idea’ presentation, drop in event and ‘Meals and Wheels’ event stall. A KCDP Steering Group and feedback sessions. Over 495 members of the community participated in the ‘I Love Kirknewton’ community consultation, including 198 primary school children, 26 Balerno High School Children, 120 at a drop in event and the rest via in street, doorstep or stakeholder group meetings. Over 70 members of the community provided feedback on the findings at a ‘Your Big Ideas’ presentation and event. The community were informed at all stages by the use of a local free magazine, leaflets, posters, local press, e mail membership list/s, facebook, twitter, blog, stalls at village events and the Kirknewton website. The full community participation exercise can be seen at http://www.issuu.com/kirknewton/docs/kirknewton_final_report2011.1 and that document compliments the actions of this Development Plan.
