GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY OF LIVINGSTON NEW TOWN

That this House notes that 2012 marks the golden anniversary of the establishment of Livingston new town as the fourth of Scotland's five post-war new towns; praises the remarkable progress made by the town during those 50 years, which has seen it grow from modest beginnings to become the economic hub of West Lothian and the seventh largest town or city in Scotland with a population of around 55,000; further notes that Livingston is recognised as one of the most popular business locations in Scotland, with a wide variety of local, UK-wide and international companies located in the area, and that the town's shopping centre has become one of the most frequented in Scotland, with one million square feet of retail space and 13 million shoppers visiting each year; applauds the fact that Livingston FC reached third position in the Scottish Premier League and qualified for the UEFA Cup within only seven years of the club being established in Livingston; commends the contributions of all those who have been associated with the planning and development of Livingston and its amenities over the past 50 years, as well as all of thetown's residents and groups for their enthusiasm and community spirit in helping to make it such a desirable location to live, work, relax and shop; and looks forward to Livingston's continued success in the years ahead.
