Scotland’s first Local Geodiversity Action Plan – the West Lothian Geodiversity Framework – is nearing completion. With help from West Lothian Council, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Lothian and Borders RIGS Group, the British Geological Survey (BGS) has finished the geodiversity audit and the associated report; the GIS & database and outline action plan are well advanced. The project, funded by the Scottish Executive Aggregates Levy Fund and BGS, assesses the state of geodiversity in the area in its local to national context, and its relevance to biodiversity, soil conservation and other protection designations. The audit will inform sustainable planning and development, management, conservation and interpretation of the Earth heritage of the area.
