Proposed Housing Development in Thornhill

You may be aware of a proposed mixed housing/ industrial development on the edge of Thornhill, which includes 73 new houses and JCC moving to the new site.
The proposal concerns land North West Of And At Burnside Works Main Street Thornhill.
More information can be found on the Stirling Council Planning website at https://pabs.stirling.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=R30NNMPIJ0E00

Community councils have a statutory right to be consulted on applications for planning permission and represent the local viewpoint on developments.
Thornhill & Blairdrummond Community Council are hosting an open meeting online this Wednesday evening (15th Dec), contact ThornhillBlairdrummondCC@gmail.com for the joining instructions

There are a couple of things to note:

  • There are 47 documents in total so you may want to concentrate on the areas which affect you most or which you have expertise in.
  • The deadline for comments to the Planning Department is 30th December which doesn’t give us much time to study the documents. However, the Community Council has requested an extension to this deadline so I will inform you if it is granted.
  • As Thornhill residents you have the right to comment on this planning application either directly to the Planning Department or via the Community Council. TCT will also develop a response based on your feedback.

Please respond to chair@thornhillstirling.org if you would like your views included in the TCT response.

North Common Survey Report

The community of Thornhill are fortunate enough to have two areas of common land which bound the village on its north and south sides. The North Common is wilder in character than its counterpart to the south, comprising a mix of grassland, marshland, scrub and woodland habitats.

To inform the community’s plans for the North Common, Thornhill Community Trust commissioned a report from Thornhill Biodiversity Group member and professional ecological consultant Matt Harding.

Light Up Thornhill & Windows Advent Calendar

We are pleased to say that our Christmas elves will be busy again this year putting up the Christmas lights around the village. Please join in by putting up your own lights.

Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty about Covid restrictions we haven’t been able to organise a parade or get together afterwards.

After the success of last year’s beautifully decorated windows, we would like to invite you to sign up again.
If you want to take part please sign up here to choose your date.

Once Advent starts we will be advertising the ‘grand window openings’ and posting photos of the windows in the Advent calendar for everyone to see.

Picnic Bench on South Common

Now that we’re heading for autumn and winter it may not seem the weather for a picnic, but if you should feel the need for a seat outdoors for a natter with friends or just to have a rest there is a new picnic bench on the South Common outside the Community Hall.

Money for the bench was donated by Thornhill & Blairdrummond Community Council, Thornhill Community Hall and Thornhill Community Trust. Thanks to Jim and his helpers who installed the bench. We hope you enjoy using it.
