The West Lothian Area
We cover the same eligible areas as the previous programme but will now include all of the towns in West Lothian, with the exception of Livingston. However, the LAG will consider projects which clearly benefit the rural area even if they are located within Livingston or pass through it; for example, a project based around the River Almond would be allowed to include the parts of the river that passed through Livingston.
