Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER Local Action Group held a workshop on 8th March to highlight work being done by the SMART Digital Villages Network. This includes a range of sensors measuring a number of environmental factors including air quality, weather and traffic flow.
Thornhill’s sensors are on top of the Masonic Hall. You can see an example of the data received so far below. You can access a recording of the workshop here.
In December 2021 we asked villagers their views on developing a village centre in and around “The Loan”. You can now download the leaflet and a map of the area under consideration. More updates will follow as available.
The full results of the Thornhill Futures Questionnaire, in which a large number of villagers participated earlier in 2021, can now be downloaded here.
Our new Thornhill air quality & weather station is now online.
Located atop the Masonic Lodge at the Junction of the Kippen and Aberfoyle Roads it measures particulate matter PM10 and PM2.5 plus wind speed, direction, solar energy, temperature, pressure, humidity and of course rainfall. Additional air quality sensors are scheduled to be located at the other end of Main Street during February and Traffic Data will follow in due course
We’ve already had a great response to our community questionnaire, so huge thanks to all who have taken the time to fill it in and have their say.
We have decided to extend the deadline for survey responses until Sunday 18th April, so chivvy along any friends, family, or neighbours who are yet to take part, you can find the link to complete the survey online below:
