West Lothian Council has to do more to encourage house builders to take on brownfield sites or else it will continue to face development bids for its dwindling open countryside.That was the call from Armadale’s Independent councillor Stuart Borrowman after West Lothian Council’s Planning Committee rejected proposals by Miller Homes to build on a 39- acre site beyond the boundary of the town, in open countryside off a poorly maintained C-class road.Planners had recommended refusal, citing the potential damage to the amenity of open country and to natural sites such as the neighbouring Black Moss.The application site is predominantly agricultural fields located on the western side of Armadale to the north and south of the road to Harthill.
