Tesco Bags of Help : Please Vote for the Community Council's Project 'Urgent Repairs to High Street'
One of the three projects seeking funding from 'Tesco Bags of Help' in January and February 2018, is a Community Council-supported project to carry out urgent repairs to a Listed Building at 20/22 High Street, Dunblane (formerly accommodating Tickety Boo and Fuzzies) which was built in 1726. The building is in serious disrepair but there is no way that the 96 year old owner is going to be doing anything soon and the Council simply does not have the funds. That is why the Community Council has stepped in - we are hoping to be able to fix the gutters and give the building a lick of paint - the High Street has enough other problems to contend with!

Key issues for Dunblane Community Council
Key issues include:-
1. The Local Development Plan, planning applications and housing developments
2. Community care services, local amenities, leisure and recreation facilities and the environment
3. Infrastructure provision eg schools, health, roads & parking
4. Communicating with and consulting the Community
5. Communicating with Stirling Council, the Police, the Health Board, etc
To assist in tackling these issues, the Community Council works actively with the four councillors who represent Dunblane on Stirling Council. We also work closely with the local MSP, MP and MEP, Dunblane Development Trust and other Dunblane organisations.
Community Engagement : Most importantly, we seek to engage actively with all the people we represent - members of the local community, both individually and in groups.

Participate : All Community Council meetings are open to the public. You are welcome, whether to observe, to raise issues, to float ideas, or get involved in a debate. DCC is keen to engage with members of the community.
Volunteer : If you are interested in joining the Community Council or if you want to raise an issue with an individual Community Councillor, contact DCC.
