Wester Hailes Community Trust is a collaborative community organisation that has been established to support genuine community-led development in Wester Hailes. It is a member-led organisation with members made up of local residents and organisations.
They have led on several largescale design consultations including a redesigned Westside Plaza Civic Square and are currently consulting on the creation of a Wester Hailes Local Place Plan.
The Wester Hailes Local Place Plan is a comprehensive report which outlines 36 proposed projects for Wester Hailes. These 36 projects address and reflect the community feedback gathered through extensive and inclusive community engagement at events, workshops, and sessions in and around Wester Hailes. The 36 projects work towards achieving a 20-minute neighbourhood and range from physical interventions to long term strategies. The projects exemplify the equal importance of the built environment and the social supports necessary for communities to thrive. We hope that this final Place Plan will act as a catalyst for a fruitful future of community-oriented development in Wester Hailes.
