Scottish Water to finally tackle flooding in Dunblane’s Claredon Place

SCOTTISH Water haves undertaken several detailed surveys of the Claredon Place in Dunblane and modelled the reported conditions, thus providing them with a greater understanding of the issues being experienced. They have now potentially identified a number of additional properties on Claredon Place that they believe may be at risk of internal flooding. Scottish Water believe that the proposed solution will need to be comprehensive and they will need to claim additional funding per property effected. Scottish Water are now waiting for responses from the owners of the newly identified properties before they can add them to the At Risk of Internal Sewer Flooding Register. Properties have suffered severe internal flooding for many years. Due to the scale of works, Scottish Water are proposing that they now deliver the solution in multiple phases to resolve the flooding at Claredon Place. Scottish Water are currently progressing options for remediation. They have estimated that the preferred solution for Claredon place will be selected by September and that the necessary funding will be secured by December. Stirling Council have already committed to working with Scottish Water and installing additional gully’s, as required, to alleviate flooding and make premises more secure.

Take precautions in protecting your home

Due to recent housebreakings in the Forth Valley area, home owners and occupants are reminded that on the dark nights, particularly in the holiday season, to take precautions in protecting their homes. The precuations include:
 
- Leaving lights on in rooms such as living rooms and kitchens.
- Leaving on noise making devices such as televisions or radios.
- Where possible, leaving a car at the property.
- If away for a period of time, requesting a trusted friend or neighbour attend the property and remove items from behind doorways, such as newspapers or letters
 
Simple precautions such as the ones listed are proven to deter housebreakers thereby protecting property.
 
Residents are also reminded of the importance of reporting any suspicious persons or vehicles in their area to Police by calling 101.
 
By working together we will make our communities safer.

 Rural Watch Scotland

'Rural Watch Scotland' is an extension of the Neighbourhood Watch Scotland movement and endorsed by  the Scottish Partnership Against Rural Crime (SPARC) and Forth valley Rural Crime Group aimed specifically at the rural communities of Scotland and aims to bring all the benefits of Neighbourhood Watch to all rural communities irrespective of location, size or demographics. Rural watch is an online community for any member of the public where appeals, crime prevention tips and safety alerts can be posted by those who subscribe which can be viewed by all members. Subscription is free and the sharing of information on the forum is a great example of real time crime prevention in action. The objectives of Rural Watch Scotland are to:

  • Reduce crime and the fear of crime by providing the right information, to the right people, at the right time.
  • Encourage people to think about safety and security for themselves, their neighbours and their community.
  • Improve community cohesion and well-being by supporting communities to develop 'their watch, their way'.
  • Work in partnership with national and local service providers to develop more resilient communities that are better prepared against threats, intentional or unintentional, such as crime or extreme weather.

The experience of Neighbourhood Watch throughout Scotland and elsewhere across the world is that members of Rural Watch Scotland will be less likely than non-members in the rural community to be a victim of crime. By joining the Rural Watch Scotland scheme members can receive alerts and advice by phone, text or email. By keeping members informed about crime and other threats in specific areas, Rural Watch Scotland can help prevent crime, keep communities and residents safe, and members responses to these alerts can help catch criminals or be better prepared to deal with other threats to communities. To join Rural Watch Scotland simply:

Letter from Stirling Council about litter bins and pole mounted dog bins (4/12/17)

Land Services has taken the decision not to replace broken pole mounted dog bins for the reasons stated below. Could you pass the details below to all Community Councils as an explanation as to why, and the options available.  We are working hard to minimise the use of pole mounted dog bins, many were erected in the past, and as they fail we are assessing the need for litter bin provision in general. These dog bins are not particularly hygienic for use by the general public, as their use requires a "touch", with operation of the lid. Far worse, are the Health & Safety issues encountered by our operatives during the process of emptying, exacerbated by overfilling of the containers, and heavy rain. Within the environment of a residential street, the first option for disposal of dog waste is the domestic wheeled bin, this also applies to other items of litter, most of which can be readily recycled with the variety of containers our residents are issued.  The second option is to use a free standing litter bin, which accepts both litter & dog waste. These larger containers act as a dilute and disperse for the waste, giving a much cleaner empty for the operative. They also empty via a door, preferable to a straight lift up from a pole bin, on occasion showering the employee with the contents. These free standing litter bins are expensive, therefore they cannot be located everywhere.

Community Council consultation launched

Stirling Council has launched a new consultation into the way Community Councils function across the Stirling area.

At a special full Council Meeting, Councillors agreed to a review of the local authority’s Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils and accompanying Code of Conduct.
The initial consultation process will be held over two 8 weeks periods - any amendments to proposals would then be put out for a final 4 week consultation.
The first 8 week consultation period is open to Community Councils, community groups, local trust and organisations who are invited to take part in an online survey.
Community Councillors are also being invited to meet with Stirling Council to discuss the review on Saturday 25 November in the Council Chambers at Old Viewforth.
Community Council boundaries, the number of representatives and election procedures are determined by each part local authority, through the Scheme for the Establishment of Community Councils.

The review follows significant changes at a national level, including the review of the area’s electoral wards and is part of Stirling Council’s work to maintain a strong understanding of the needs of our communities. Community Planning and Regeneration Committee Convenor Chris Kane said, “Community Councils are a vital part of the democratic process. As a former Community Council Chairperson, I’ve had countless conversations with fellow Community Councillors about what works, what doesn’t work and what could work better; this consultation gives everybody the chance to have their say.  With the next community council elections due in 2018, it is crucial we take the opportunity to ensure they are robust and continue to be effective champions of local democracy.”

Currently there are 40 Community Councils operating in the Stirling Council area – with membership ranging from 8 to 15 councillors covering areas as small as 200 residents and as large as around 9,500.  More information on the consultation, as well as a survey link can be found here: https://www.stirling.gov.uk/community-leisure/about-community-councils/community-council-review/ccreview

Police Advice on Doorstep Crime and Bogus Workmen

What is Doorstep Crime?

Bogus Callers: Will attempt to get into your home or obtain personal details by pretending to be someone they're not, including: Council Staff, Meter readers, Charity collectors, Police officers. In reality, they are criminals trying to steal your cash and valuables.

Rogue Traders: Usually cold callers, offering to make repairs or carry out work on your house, garden or driveway.  In reality they charge inflated prices for shoddy or often completely unnecessary work.

We do not recommend dealing with cold callers for property maintenance and repairs to your home and garden areas. Contact your local council to see if they operate a trusted traders scheme or similar, where you will find a list of accredited trades people. Below is some useful advice and considerations.

Think:

  • Be on your guard if someone turns up unexpectedly.
  • Be aware of methods used by criminals to distract you such as being asked to make a phone call, to use your toilet, for a glass of water, or being asked to check your water or gas supplies.
  • Do not keep large amounts of money at home.Does your premises or garden really require work to be carried out.
  • If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Be vigilant for vulnerable neighbours who may fall foul of these criminals.
  • About calling the police when you see anything suspicious.
  • Never let someone you don't know into your house, if you're not sure don’t answer the door.

What can I do?

SECURE:

  • Use a door chain or bar: Always put the chain on before answering the door, and keep it on while taking to callers
  • If you have a door viewer- use it.
  • Keep rear, side doors and windows secure.
  • Don’t feel embarrassed- genuine callers expect you to be careful
  • Ask for identification, whether you expect anyone or not.
  • Remember- ID's can be fake and shouldn't be relied upon.
  • Don’t assume a caller is genuine because they are wearing a uniform
  • Obtain a written quote before agreeing to any work
  • If you have any doubts, tell the caller to come back when someone else is home, genuine callers won’t mind rearranging. IF IN DOUBT KEEP THEM OUT
  • Don’t feel pressurised into agreeing to immediate work- Never listen to scare stories, beware of traders who suddenly appear after storms or floods and claims of low prices if you sign up immediately.
  • Don’t agree to buy from the first person who calls- do you really want or need these goods or services
  • Don’t pay cash up front- never pay for work before it is completed and do not hand over large sums of money
  • Shop around if you decide you need work done- Get a minimum of three quotes from reputable traders or recommendations from people you trust
  • Cancellation rights- Any job over £42- traders are required to provide written notice informing the consumer that they have a 14 day cooling off period during which time the consumer can cancel the contract.

Should you require any further information please log onto www.policescotland.co.uk  or contact Police Scotland via 101 or Trading Standards at Stirling Council on (01786) 404040.
