Stirling Council has commissioned Amey to develop plans for the area around the Cathedral up to the Braeport Centre.  These proposals were presented to the community on 29 April 2017. The presentation has now been posted on the Stirling Council website along with an on-line form to get feedback from the community:

The Stirling Council questionnaire/feedback form closes on Monday 21 May 2017.


The Community Council would like to hear your views on the 20mph members bill in the Scottish Parliament, submitted by Mark Ruskell (Green Party). The full consultation document can be downloaded from the Scottish Parliament Website here.  

The bill proposes reducing the default speed limit on restricted roads from 30mph to 20mph, whilst giving local councils the power to retain specific streets as 30mph zones where suitable, e.g. as designated through routes. Whilst many communities have already benefited from being reclassified as 20mph zones, the approach in Scotland to date has been piecemeal, resulting in some local councils having no permanent 20mph zones in place at all.
