Winchburgh is a rural village in West Lothian. Situated 10 miles from Edinburgh, 25 miles from Stirling and 40 miles from Glasgow, Winchburgh is centrally located and has easy access to these neighbouring cities. Traditionally a rural mining community, today Winchburgh is a village experiencing rapid change and substantial growth with a large-scale housing development underway.
As these changes take effect, Winchburgh Community Council aims to play a role in helping to ensure that community networks are encouraged and strengthened. We work with various organisations (such as the Police, West Lothian Council, NHS, Environmental Services, and local businesses amongst many others) to identify ways of improving the lives and wellbeing of Winchburgh residents. We want to help foster a buoyant and resilient Winchburgh community in times of change.
