The AGM for your Community Council takes place on 18th November at 7.00pm, on zoom. This is approaching fast and we need new members.
The general aim of the Community Council is to represent the community to Stirling Council, but Community Councils also bring local people together to help make things happen, and many Community Councils protect and promote the identity of their community.
Our Community Council strives to do all those things, but one other very important role is in planning permissions and this function is crucial with the proposed planning development in Thornhill: one of the biggest planning decisions we will ever encounter.
Community Councils have a statutory right to be consulted on applications for planning permission and the Community Council has a special role, representing a broader yet still local view which can be set alongside the comments of individuals and groups within the community.
The Community Council’s key task is helping to provide an informed local context within which appropriate decisions can be made in the public interest.
So this is your chance to effect change and support within the combined communities so that we are a full and dynamic Community Council to face all the challenges we will meet in 2021.
Details of how to join meeting will be confirmed nearer the time.
