Thornhill and Blair Drummond Community Council needs you!

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.

If you are interested in joining, please contact Michelle Flynn: office: 01786 233071 / mobile 07990 082315 / email flynnm@stirling.gov.uk

Details of how to join meeting will be confirmed nearer the time.

20mph Speed Limit For Thornhill

THORNHILL & BLAIR DRUMMOND COMMUNITY COUNCIL UPDATE

Stirling Council has confirmed that officers within the Network Management team are currently finalising proposals for Thornhill, with a 20mph speed limit proposed to cover Main Street and all residential streets.
The work will also include a replacement vehicle activated sign in the vicinity of Burnhead and changes to road markings within the village to encourage improved driver behaviour.
The Council hopes to advertise the speed limit order within the next month (October), and have all works within the village completed by January 2021.
