What Came Before



To carry out the capital works for the transformation of The Causey, this design proposal needs an approved Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) and Redetermination Order (RDO) which, due to a small number of unresolved objections, required a Scottish Ministers Hearing to take place. This happened in August 2021 and an outcome is currently awaited.


In 2011 the WCCA was renamed as The Causey Development Trust (CDT) and in April 2011 became a registered charity (SC042217).


Following the success of that temporary project, the WCCA decided to pursue a permanent transformation of the space into a place for people influenced by the ideas and hopes of local people in workshops, exhibitions and consultation/engagement events.

Founding story

The West Crosscauseway Association (WCCA) was formed in February 2007 in response to a temporary, award-winning project in the Causey, part of the SIX CITIES Design Festival held in May 2007.

This project transformed the place from a car-dominated traffic island into an elegant tropical island for local people to enjoy. With no through vehicle traffic this project gave a vision of how the street could look and be used.
