Charles Jencks Gateway to Village art project progresses

Kirknewton Community Council and Kirknewton Community Development Trust have made an application for Planning Consent to West Lothian Council for the proposed Charles Jencks Landform Art at Camps Junction, Kirknewton.  This will improve the disused area of ground to the entrance of our village and  we also hope to improve walking access down the verge.


Our application for funding from West Lothian Council for £20K from the Public Art Grant and an additional £10K from the Village Improvement Funds has been granted conditionally upon us securing planning consent for the work and the asset transfer, which we hope will be successful.

In the coming weeks we hope to engage with young people and the community a little more on the project.  The information has been out in the public domain for some time, online and in the Green Room, and we are keen to get further feedback on the proposals to  The project brief, put together by Charles Jencks, can be read here
