A PRICING structure has been agreed for the renovated Linlithgow Burgh Halls.
When it is completed later in the spring, the Burgh Halls will offer facilities to a wide range of customers; for community activities and events, business seminars and conferences, wedding receptions and other functions.
West Lothian Council’s Executive Committee heard the potential for income generation is an important element of the business plan to ensure that the venue is financially viable.
It is anticipated that there will be a high demand for the facilities and the pricing reflects the need to balance community use with commercial lets.
Linlithgow Burgh Halls is a Grade A listed building situated in a prominent position in the town and has played a significant role in the life of the local community for generations but had fallen into a state of disrepair.
A £5 million funding package was secured to transform the venue into a first class community, arts and heritage facility.
The construction project is due for completion in April 2010.
Executive councillor for culture and leisure Jim Walker said: "In setting the charges within this pricing structure we have tried to ensure that they are affordable but, equally, that they reflect the quality of facilities provided.”
Package prices are being developed for weddings and private parties and these will be finalised once the catering contract has been awarded.
